Stipends available for  MSc Intelligent Systems for EU students

We are pleased to announce that for eligible selected EU
students we have just obtained notice of funding  to offer
places with free fees and a bursary for our MSc Intelligent
Systems. This stipend of free fees and bursary was about 8000 EURO
last term. This scheme applies to our Feb/March entry 2006
and also our entry in October 2006 for selected EU students.

***Please forward to  students who may be interested.***

The School of Computing and Technology, University of Sunderland
is delighted to announce the launch of its  MSc Intelligent Systems
programme for 2006. Building on the School's leading edge
research in intelligent systems this masters programme will be
funded partially via the ESF scheme.

Intelligent Systems is an exciting field of study for science and
industry  since the currently existing computing systems have
often not yet  reached the various aspects of  human performance.
"Intelligent Systems" is a term to describe software systems and
methods, which simulate aspects of intelligent behaviour. The intention
is  to learn from nature and human performance in order to build more
powerful computing systems. The aim is to learn from cognitive science,
neuroscience, biology, engineering, and linguistics for building more
powerful computational system architectures. In this programme a
wide variety of novel and exciting techniques will be taught including
neural networks, intelligent robotics, machine learning, natural
language processing,  vision, evolutionary genetic computing, data
mining, fuzzy methods, and  hybrid intelligent architectures.

The Bursary Scheme applies to this Masters programme commencing
February/March 2006 and October 2006 and we have obtained funding
through the European Social Fund (ESF). ESF  support enables the
University to waive the normal tuition fee and provide  a bursary
of £ 50 per week for 45 weeks for eligible selected EU students,
together up to about 5500 pounds or about 8000 Euro. We also
have support for fee-only stipends and further support under the
women into science programme for UK and EU students.
