Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Artificial intelligence is a very specialist subject taken by very few people at the moment, so there is little reliable information available on graduate prospects - bear that in mind when you review the stats above. Graduates taking this type of subject are more likely than other computing graduates to go into further research. However, if you want to find out more specifically about the potential graduate outcomes of a specific course, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates have gone on to do.
