Kunstmatige Intelligentie


A degree in Artificial Intelligence equips you for a wide range of fields, precisely because your knowledge is so broad and you can approach matters from various perspectives. You can also communicate well with other specialists in the discipline. That makes you highly employable for companies and organizations. You will have broad knowledge and a logical reasoning ability… therefore excellent career prospects!

Finding work when you graduate

Many graduates find suitable jobs in the business sector in the Netherlands or abroad. Other graduates choose another path, such as setting up their own business. Once they have their Bachelor's degree, most students choose a related Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence or Human-Machine Communication. When you choose Artificial Intelligence you can work at institutions who work with large data files, like hospitals or banks. You can also find a job at research and development departments of multinationals and build autonomous systems. When you go for Human-Machine Communication, you can become a cognitive ergonomist and develop software and devices.

User-friendly software or devices

With your Master's degree you are employable in companies that produce software or devices. Among other things, your work will involve making these as user-friendly as possible. Examples of companies our graduates currently work at are: Accenture, Ethical Hacker, TNO, Deloitte, Educational game researcher, Nederlands Forensisch Instituut, ORTEC, KPN Consulting, Achmea, and Almende.

Omdat je zo breed wordt opgeleid, is Kunstmatige intelligentie een studie waarmee je veel kanten op kunt, zowel in Nederland als in het buitenland. Je leert zaken vanuit diverse invalshoeken benaderen en daardoor kun je ook goed communiceren met andere vakspecialisten. Dat is heel waardevol voor veel bedrijven en instanties. Je beroepskeuze zal voor een groot deel samenhangen met de master die je hebt gevolgd.

Na de master Artificial Intelligence
Met deze master word je kennistechnoloog of bouwer van autonome perceptieve systemen. Veel studenten beginnen de studie met het idee daarna een baan bij een bedrijf te zoeken. Velen vinden een passende baan in het bedrijfsleven, anderen beginnen bijvoorbeeld als zelfstandig ondernemer, of als academisch onderzoeker.

Je kunt werken bij instanties die met grote gegevensbestanden werken, zoals ziekenhuizen, banken of expertisecentra. Ook kun je terecht bij onderzoeksafdelingen, bijvoorbeeld als bouwer van autonome systemen.

Na de master Human Machine Communication
Als afgestudeerde van de master Human Machine Communication kun je als cognitief ergonoom aan de slag. Dat betekent dat je werkt bij bedrijven die apparaten of software maken. Daarnaast kun je ook met deze master als onderzoeker aan de slag, bij een universiteit of op de onderzoeksafdeling van bedrijven als Philips, Shell of TNO.

Voorbeelden van bedrijven waar onze afgestudeerden nu werken: Accenture, Ethical Hacker, TNO, Deloitte, Educational game researcher, Nederlands Forensisch Instituut, ORTEC, KPN Consulting, Achmea, en Almende.

    How humans learn new tasks

    After doing her master's project in the USA, Trudy wanted to continue to work on the edge of knowledge. She ended up back in Groningen for a PhD project about the transfer of cognitive skills. She builds computer models which show how humans learn new tasks and tests them by comparing them to, for example, test scores or brain activity. Using her models we can learn more about how your brain uses what you already know to learn something new.

    The lectures have a good dynamic, the lecturers are very involved and their English helps me improve mine

    Groningen is a great place for international students. I started with a semester here as part of my first studies, Law and Economics, and returned for the bachelor programme Artificial Intelligence. There are plenty of places that define themselves as 'academically oriented', but Groningen really offers an involving university atmosphere.

    There are so many committees, study-related activities, sports clubs, extra-curricular courses and even a welcoming week. Thanks to the ESN (Erasmus Student Network ) there also is a thriving community of international students.

    The Dutch are very open and helpful, but it is essential to have other international students around. Especially when it comes to bureaucratic issues, like enrolling at city hall, signing up for exams or finding a doctor. It helps to talk to people who are going through the same things. I've made sure to be part of several different student bodies and groups, so that I can help guide other students. It's a lot of work, but being a pivot within the university makes me feel like this city really is my home.

    The Netherlands have a very curious, open and accepting society. As soon as you realise that everyone here is away from their home, even the Dutch, it's easy to find common ground and make friends. I live with other Dutch students and was recently invited to go sailing with one of them, and I've even met their parents. I feel lucky to be able to keep in touch with my own family and friends at home so easily thanks to social media and video calls. It has made it a lot less scary to take the leap.

    Although I already knew the city from my initial semester, I was a little hesitant about starting a full-blown bachelor. The university offered me the chance to get my math level up to scratch over the summer so that I would qualify for the programme, which made me a little nervous about whether I'd be able to pass my classes. Fortunately, Artificial Intelligence is right up my street. The lectures have a good dynamic, the lecturers are very involved and their English helps me improve mine. It is a tough subject that takes a certain commitment, but that truly pays off.

    I read a very interesting quote in one of our readers, that has stuck with me ever since: 'Artificial Intelligence is one of the newest fields in science and engineering. (…) A student in physics might reasonably feel that all the good ideas have been taken by Galileo, Newton, Einstein and the rest. AI, on the other hand, still has openings for several full-time Einsteins and Edisons

    Programming has made me think more analytically

    The main reason I chose AI is that it is very broad and covers a multitude of subjects in different fields. It's perfect since I am widely interested and I didn't want to commit to one specific field.

    The subjects I enjoyed most are logic, cognitive psychology and linguistics. I like the way logic and programming have made me think more analytically. Programming has been hard for me though, especially persevering with an assignment when all hope seems to be lost. This is something I am still working on.

    In my free time I like to play and listen to music and have drinks at my LGBT-student association Ganymedes. I also do committee work there, as I enjoy being an active member.
