Has anyone done the masters in Applied Artificial Intelligence and User Experience?

I've got an offer from the course, and I'm not too sure if I should accept it. It looks really interesting from what I have read but has anyone studied it, is it any good?

Congratulations! :party:

What's holding you back / making you unsure?

Thanks for the reply. I've also been accepted onto a master's in Human-Centred Interactive Technologies at York. It's a better-ranked uni but does not focus on AI. Also, the data-driven design and applied psychology modules at Abertay also look interesting. I guess I'm stuck deciding whether to do a course structured and focused on what I want to do or one that's well-established and research-focused but more general.

Always follow the specialisms as that's what people will employ you for in this field. Potentially York might provide a wider network of industry connections and people who know people who went there, but if you interview well and have the specialisms they're looking for then a company won't be too fussed which institution you came from.

Did you end up going to Abertay? I've been looking at the same program but I'm on the fence
