Stipends available for  MSc Intelligent Systems for EU students

We are pleased to announce that for eligible selected EU
students we can offer stipends with free fees (worth more than
3000 pounds) and a bursary  of 500 pounds for our MSc Intelligent
Systems. Together this stipend is worth about 5000 Euro in fees and
bursary. This scheme applies to our October 2006 for selected EU

The School of Computing and Technology, University of Sunderland
is delighted to announce the launch of its  MSc Intelligent Systems
programme for 2006. Building on the School's leading edge
research in intelligent systems this masters programme will be
funded partially via the ESF programme and Women into Science

Intelligent Systems is an exciting field of study for science and
industry  since the currently existing computing systems have
often not yet  reached the various aspects of  human performance.
"Intelligent Systems" is a term to describe software systems and
methods, which simulate aspects of intelligent behaviour. The intention
is  to learn from nature and human performance in order to build more
powerful computing systems. The aim is to learn from cognitive science,
neuroscience, biology, engineering, and linguistics for building more
powerful computational system architectures. In this programme a
wide variety of novel and exciting techniques will be taught including
neural networks, intelligent robotics, machine learning, natural
language processing,  vision, evolutionary genetic computing, data
mining, fuzzy methods, and  hybrid intelligent architectures.

The Bursary Scheme applies to this Masters programme commencing
October 2006 and we have obtained funding through both the European
Social Fund (ESF) and under the women into science programme for UK and
EU students.
