Computational Intelligence (CI) course taught at postgraduate level at De Montfort University (DMU) is discussed. The MSc Intelligent Systems (IS) and MSc IS and Robotics (ISR) programs are delivered on-site and distance learning at the Masters level. The two courses share seven out of eight modules, the eighth being a second robotics module for the MSc ISR and a data mining module for the MSc IS. The assessments allow the students to investigate appropriate topics in their own way. The discussion board helps to create a virtual learning environment which is identified as being important for students engaging in e-learning. One of the modules being taught is Fuzzy Logic. It is taught over a ten-week period and the students on campus have two hours of lectures and one hour of laboratory work using Matlab. The remainder of the assessment is through two assignments, a Matlab fuzzy system to be written in a particular domain and a report tackling questions about the more advanced topics of Preference Modeling and Type-2 Fuzzy Logic.
