MSc in AI

Learn, think, think again, do

CitAI offers an MSc in Artificial Intelligence. Students learn theoretical and mathematical principles of Artificial Intelligence and advanced groundbreaking AI methods in a balanced programme that includes data classification, sequence analysis, prediction and control, cognitive modelling, and AI creativity. Students are also introduced to AI's ethical and legal challenges and trained to critically investigate them and explore ways to make AI explainable and fair.

Our approach is founded on collaborative learning. Thus, students are encouraged to work in teams in all modules.

Our focus is on Deep Learning - developing adaptable artificial neural networks (ANNs) that simulate brain/cognitive function. These include Convolutional and Recurrent networks, Variational Autoencoders, Generative Adversarial Networks, Transformers, GPTs and Deep Reinforcement Learning algorithms and architectures.

This is a hands-on master, and students finish their learning journey to AI by designing and developing a research-based or applied project, under the supervision of members of our CitAI team.

Students' reading club

To join the master, you will need to have a fair amount of scientific curiosity, a keen interest in learning, good mathematical knowledge, problem-solving abilities, and proficiency in Python -the running programming language in all modules.

The MSc AI is avant-garde and we have a CitAI Lab which provides the latest computers, tools and technologies, and the GPU power needed for Artificial Intelligence. Please visit City's website for details on requirements and how to apply.

If you have any questions, please contact the MSc AI Programme Director Dr. Esther Mondragón (
