The MUIA comes from the adaptation of the Master's Programme in Artificial Intelligence Research to the European Higher Education Area. In order to gradute from the MUIA, students must complete 60 ECTS credits, 35 out of them corresponding to semester-long optatives, 10 credits corresponding to seminars and 15 credits associated with the Final project of the Master's Programme.

Together with these subjects, there is a subject in Research Foundations, another subject in Areas of Application and one corresponding to Seminars taught by prestigious, internationally renowned external visiting lecturers that will give lessons about advanced or specialised contents.


The current offer includes 60 places for new students. This master's programme is suitable for two types of students: those who are interested in specialising in one or several concrete disciplines of Artificial Intelligence, who may attend all the subjects and seminars in certain fields of their interest; and those who look for a broader view, in other words, for the acquisition of general knowledge about the different fields included in the MUIA,  attending subjects related to all of them.

The languages used  are Spanish and English (subjects and seminars are conducted in one of the aforementioned languages). In addition, the fact that many subjects are conducted in the English language makes it possible for foreign students to complete the whole master's programme in English.
