MS Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Overview Road Map


Over the past ten years, we’ve seen dramatic progress in the rise of artificial intelligence and its use in the development of systems that can reason and respond to increasingly complex situations. Quite simply, AI is everywhere and the change brought about by these technologies has just begun. As AI moves from idea to implementation, it is clear that future intelligent systems will be designed to partner with, rather than replace or even augment, human users.

Stemming from this growth in artificial intelligence technology is an increasing demand for individuals who can create AI systems embedded in practical settings that function alongside and in conjunction with human beings.

The Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence program aims to serve this demand by producing students who have exceptional technical skills and also understand the nature of the human environments in which the systems they build will be deployed. Our goal is to educate and train students in all aspects of how the emerging technologies of machine intelligence can be designed and deployed to interact and integrate with human partners.

Aims of the Program

The specific objectives of this program are to provide a foundation for the student to develop an appreciation and an understanding of the principles of Artificial Intelligence

  • inculcate knowledge of design, construction and operation of communications systems and software applications necessary for Artificial Intelligence
  • develop the skills in the planning, design and management of Artificial infrastructure in the local and international settings
  • train students to appreciate professional obligations, responsibilities and ethics in relation to the needs of society
  • provide a sound academic base to embark on lifelong learning and research for personal grooming

Career Prospects

Companies specializing in professional services and research institutions face volumes of data that cannot be addressed manually. These companies and institutions need intelligent tools that go beyond simple analytics and allow users and researchers to interact with and explore their data.

A recent poll found that globally, 84% of companies see AI as “essential” to competitiveness, while 50% see the technology as “transformative.” However, despite the clear demand for AI products and workflows, other reports show a significant shortage of talent to fill positions related to artificial intelligence.

The Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence will not simply prepare you for these careers. Through internships and capstone projects, this program will also help to connect you with companies and institutions who are industry leaders in AI.
