BS Artificial Intelligence

Overview Elective Courses  

Introduction

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the attempt to build artificial systems that have intelligent behavior. There are two main directions of research. One is to understand natural intelligence by the use of computer models. The other provides techniques and technology for building systems capable of intelligent decisions and actions. Thus AI is both a science and an engineering discipline. Applications of AI range from 'smart' controllers for household devices to computers that can converse in English, play games, conduct intelligent web searches or act as the brain of a robot.

Aims And Objectives Of The Program

The BS-Artificial Intelligence program at UMT has been designed to produce graduates who are accustomed to a range of Artificial Intelligence topics essential for designing and maintaining reliable and effective software and hardware systems. The program is designed to give its students hands on experience to cover all aspects of Artificial Intelligence including problem modeling and analysis, software design and development, software verification and validation, software quality , testing and software management and hardware designing.

After completing the program, a student will be able to:

  • Apply the basic principles of Artificial Intelligence for providing reliable software design, implement, deploy and maintain practical software systems.
  • Verify and validate software and hardware systems.
  • Understand and apply software project management skills: measurement, estimation, costing, planning, deployment and tracking of resources.
  • communicate effectively in career and educational environments, and
  • Apply his/her knowledge and skills to develop a career in software and hardware business or industry, or for graduate study in software engineering or other scientific or technical fields, in general.

Career Opportunities

Computers are now ubiquitous in modern life. The most interesting opportunities in the future are open to those who really know about computing, software and information systems, AI.  Our graduates can choose from a wide range of opportunities in industry, commerce, government and academia; the majority of Informatics graduates enter employment relating to their degree, while others decide to continue within academia to pursue their research interests.
