    Im currently doing a mechatronics and robotics MEng degree and would be very interested in doing an MSc course in AI at Imperial. However, Ive also come across the comp sci courses which appeals to me also as that would strengthen my comp sci background.

    So what im asking is which makes more sense:

    To strengthen fundamental comp sci principles
    Or to specialise in comp sci principles through AI?

    Which of the 2 woukd be more beneficial in the long run?

    Also a stupid question: can you do more than one MSc degree?

    Why would you want to do two masters? Not only will you have to fork out £25k for the Master's itself, but a fair amount of the core modules would be similar, also considering you already have one masters degree, you'd end up with 3 by the end.

    Also, compare the difference in the structures of both...

    There are basically no modules you can't pick for one which you can pick for the other.

    Why not simply do one and choose all the options you might want?
