Degree in Artificial Intelligence

2023/2024 · 240 credits


Although Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been developing for a long time, its impact has been real and growing in recent years. The use of AI in an increasing number of fields and sectors is generating great interest and future possibilities: personalised medicine, autonomous vehicles, robotisation of processes, home assistance and automatic translation are just a few examples from which value can only be obtained if we have competent professionals.

The Graduate Degree in Artificial Intelligence fills this gap in the Spanish University System and faces the challenge of training this type of professionals, with skills, knowledge and abilities that allow them to generate intelligent solutions to technological, business and social problems or provide valuable innovations with the appropriate, professional and responsible use of Artificial Intelligence.

Why study

This degree is aimed at students who want to become experts in Artificial Intelligence, a discipline that until now has been approached from Computer Engineering but which has matured enough to require more specialised studies.

The latest published analyses highlight that this is and will be one of the most in-demand and best-paid professional profiles. Such is its importance that several countries (USA, China, France, Spain...) and organisations such as the EU have published strategic plans on Artificial Intelligence with the announcement of investments for its promotion in their respective territories.

University training in AI is the strategic response of countries to the lack of professionals in this field. For example, in China, the Ministry of Education has approved in 2020 the application of 180 universities to start new degrees in AI, 5 times more than in the previous year. At European level, the offer of degrees in this field is wide and consolidated; even so, it is recommended to train more staff with this profile to fill the more than 350,000 vacancies for these professionals in Europe. At national level, and outside Galicia, only 5 of the best Spanish universities offer this degree.

On the other hand, it is a discipline in constant evolution and improvement whose limits are yet to be discovered. Graduates of the Bachelor's Degree in Artificial Intelligence will be the key to devising new intelligent solutions and influencing our future by developing technology that will improve people's lives.
