About the Course

Artificial Intelligence is becoming increasingly relevant across all industries and the demand for skilled workers is growing rapidly. A recent McKinsey report forecasts that Al will generate $13 trillion in economic activity by 2030, so it’s a good time to gain expertise in this burgeoning and complex field. In this degree, you’ll learn to design and implement systems and applications in high-tech facilities, such as the newly developed Artificial Intelligence Lab. The Master of Artificial Intelligence offers two stream options. Project stream students complete an AI postgraduate project and choose two electives in each AI and IT. Students opting to undertake the research stream complete a research methods module, write a minor thesis, and select two AI electives, and one IT elective. RMIT is ranked among the world’s best by the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA). In 2018, the Australian Research Council rated RMIT ‘above world standard’ for our research in the field of AI and Image Processing. This course is among the most specialised of its kind in the country, with few other degrees focused on AI theory and applications in today’s climate. Curious and motivated students will develop advanced knowledge, placing them ahead of the pack for practical careers or research in AI.
