About us

Welcome to the Department of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Our Department has its roots in the early 90's when the first AI research was being conducted at the University of Malta. Today, we offer various short courses, a B.Sc.AI, an M.Sc. AI and a Ph.D. degree which provides specialisations in different areas of AI such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Digital Games, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Robotics, Fintech, Big Data, Creative Technologies, Text Processing, IoT, Data Science and Computer Vision. Since we believe that AI should be adopted by everyone, we also offer different entry routes into our degrees thus making them flexible to cater for a wider audience.

Studying AI is very exciting at the moment since this area has been chosen by Government as the national priority of the country and it has been earmarked by the European Union as being the backbone of the new economies, which will revolutionise the world, in the coming years. Our B.Sc. AI will also open various avenues after graduation. Students can either decide to further their studies with one of our M.Sc. AI degrees or else they can decide to work in industry.

According to studies conducted by the Ministry for Education and Employment, our graduates have nearly double the prospects (around 90%) of landing themselves well-paid employment.Our academics are interested in pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Our courses are based on a learning-by-doing methodology whereby our students use scientific rigour, creativity and problem-solving to tackle the challenges of tomorrow. That is why we regularly organise Game Jams, Hackathons and other cool events in collaboration with other faculties and institutions. This has led to the creation of various strong links with industry which facilitate the transfer of knowledge between different institutions.

If you’re interested in designing the world of tomorrow, our courses are definitely for you. Contact us and we will be more than happy to assist you and share the exciting domain of AI.
