Smart Systems is a specialist programme for students with an interest in computational intelligence: topics such as adaptive and evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, robotics, the similarities and differences between natural and synthetic intelligent systems, and research and development in this exciting area. It requires a solid grounding in Computer Science, and for that reason shares some modules with Dual Honours Computer Science. The Programme has been developed as a potential first step for students who may advance to a specialist MSc and possibly PhD study in this area.
The programme explores the theoretical underpinnings of the discipline and places an emphasis on the practical design and development of smart systems such as those based on evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, vision systems and robotics, their scientific and industrial applications, and research. All Dual and Single Honours Computing programmes, including Smart Systems, have a common first semester and common entrance requirements. This retains flexibility of choice during the first semester of the first year.
