Intelligent computer systems must be able to adapt to different situations or different users. The Machine Intelligence Master's programme enables the students to design, implement and analyse such intelligent systems. Particular emphasis is placed on probabilistic methods for intelligent decision making and learning, and on techniques for intelligent web-based systems.

Courses provide the necessary foundation in Machine Intelligence as well as other core subjects for a graduate level computer science education. A significant part of the studies consists of projects conducted in small groups of students. A project will typically include more in-depth study of particular methods and techniques, and their practical application, e.g., in computer game design, intelligent web-based services, or data mining.

The programme is managed by the Machine Intelligence Group, an internationally recognised research group with core research areas in uncertainty in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and web intelligence.

Career Opportunities  

Graduates of the Master's programme in Machine Intelligence will typically obtain a job in the IT industry, or continue with an academic career.

Candidates are in high demand and career opportunities are wide ranging. Former students have continued their careers as PhD students; others work as e.g. project leaders or system developers in private or public companies all over the world.


In order to be accepted at the Machine Intelligence programme at Aalborg University, you need to have a Bachelor’s degree in computer science, software or a closely related discipline.

In addition, documentation will be required to verify that your proficiency in English is at an acceptable level.
