LM719 Masters in Artificial Intelligence

Programme Aims

The programme is industry-led and is being developed with the support of a range of companies working in this field in Ireland. Skillnet Ireland is funding most of the development costs and the delivery costs will be part-funded both by Skillnet Ireland and the participating companies.

The University of Limerick won the tender to develop and deliver this new national MSc in Artificial Intelligence (AI). The first course began in September 2018 and was delivered predominantly online with some intensive workshops delivered in group sessions at sites designated by the College.

In addition to the Masters course a short intensive 12 week fast-track Certificate in AI course has been developed and delivered by UL in collaboration with the Irish Centre for High End Computing, Ireland’s national centre for HPC. Participants must complete the Preparatory course for entry to the Masters regardless of their prior qualifications or experience. Successful completion of the Preparatory Course will lead to the award of a Certificate in Artificial Intelligence by UL.

Both these courses will equip participants with a knowledge-base and an advanced skillset to enable them to become highly capable experts for this strategically important sector which will in turn have a positive impact on the Irish economy.

Programme Participants

The programme is aimed at existing information technology professionals, and those migrating from associated disciplines with the necessary computing and mathematics competencies.


The principal entry requirement for both the Masters course and the Certificate Course is a Level 8 honours degree, at minimum second class honours (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent) in a relevant engineering, computing, mathematics, science or technology discipline. Applicants from other disciplines who have a significant mathematics or computing (i.e. programming) element in their primary degree will also be considered. Applicants who possess an honours undergraduate degree, at minimum second-class honours, or equivalent in a non-numerate discipline and have a minimum of three years experiential learning in an appropriate computing discipline (with a high level of either mathematics or programming) may also apply. Applicants who do not meet the requirements above may be considered under the University of Limerick Recognition of Prior Learning policy.
