To provide greater support to the diversified development of Macau and to promote the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Macao sci-tech innovation corridor, the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) of the University of Macau (UM) will launch three new master’s degree programmes in the academic year 2023/2024. The programmes will cover professional fields of artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous systems and coastal environment, with the aims of cultivating more high-quality talents for the Macao society, accelerate the development of emerging industries, and promote the transformation of Macao’s economic structure.
Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence (MSc in AI) aims to develop learners within the AI discipline involving skills in technology, programming, data science, and information processing to respond to the ever-growing demand across industries for AI specialists. The programme also recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of AI, combined with analytics and large data volumes, creating an environment for AI to emerge as key technology for the future.
Master of Science in Robotics and Autonomous Systems Programme is designed to train students to learn robotics and autonomous systems engineering, which includes Advanced Robotics and Control, Intelligent Theory and Engineering Applications, Prognostics and Health Management of Engineering Systems, Mobile Robotics, etc. This MSc programme offers an advantage to its graduates in an increasingly competitive job market of robotics and autonomous systems.
Master of Science in Coastal Environment and Safety programme is designed to cultivate students with skills to work in specialized technical fields, to learn the principles and techniques of coastal environmental protection, as well as simulation and assessment techniques for threatening coastal hazards. Simultaneously, the programme will also provide training for students on their research skills, so as to serve students with various development path.
The above programmes are now open for applications. The application deadline is 28 February 2023. please click the following links for the introduction and study plan of the 3 new programmes:
16 outstanding research results from the University of Macau (UM) were presented today (30 September) at the Eighth Macau Industrial Products Show.
