In the Bachelor’s program Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence you learn about artificial intelligence (the study of computers and software that can perform intelligent behavior) in combination with the science of human cognition: the study of thinking, language, learning, and mental representations in relation to other psychological processes that involve attention, observation, memory, use of language, and decision making. This combination enables you to develop technological innovations that benefit society.


Within this English-taught program, you focus on artificial intelligence, human cognition and technological innovation. Can computers interpret human emotions in a reliable way? How does our brain process all the impulses which it receives and how does it respond to virtual and augmented reality? How does communication between humans and robots work? And what forms of artificial intelligence can we expect in the (near) future?

In the first year you take introductory courses in the fields of artificial intelligence and human cognition. Besides that you develop basic programming skills.

In the second year you deepen your knowledge. You apply your skills and knowledge within themes such as Human Computer Interaction and Cognitive Robotics. You gain experience with conducting research (for example in our own Virtual and Augmented Reality Lab).

In the third year you take the last specialization courses (for example: Introduction to Machine Learning and Advanced Programming). You also do a minor in which you choose between gaining in-depth knowledge within your program or broadening your perspective by taking courses of another discipline at Tilburg University, a different university in the Netherlands or even abroad. You finish your studies with a Bachelor’s Thesis.

Career prospects

Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence prepares you for a successful career in business, consultancy or science. Developments in this field are extremely rapid, and well-trained specialists are in great demand. You can, for example, become a web analyst, social media analyst, data journalist, intelligent software developer, social robot developer or technology consultant.
