Program Overview

The main purpose of CUI’s BS Artificial Intelligence is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the theories, methods, and techniques used in the field of artificial intelligence. The program includes courses on mathematics, statistics, programming, and machine learning, as well as more specialized topics such as natural language processing, computer vision, robotics, and data ethics. The program also include practical experience in designing, implementing, and testing AI systems, such as through capstone projects or internships. In addition, students have opportunities to engage in AI algorithm development, either through coursework or lab work.

The CUI’s BS Artificial Intelligence program is for the mathematically adept student who wishes to become a computing professional with knowledge of relevant applications areas. The degree path starts from the Fundamentals of computer science and programming, including data structures, algorithms, and software development. It also includes Mathematics and statistics, including calculus, linear algebra, and probability theory, that are essential for understanding the theoretical foundations of AI. It then emphasizes on problem solving using Core AI concepts and techniques, such as search algorithms, machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision. It also focuses on Specialization areas that allow students to focus on specific applications of AI, such as robotics, game development, data analytics, or intelligent systems.

The overall goal of an AI degree program is to prepare graduates for a range of careers in the field of AI, including as AI engineers, data scientists, machine learning specialists, AI researchers, or AI product managers. Additionally, the program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to apply AI to a wide range of domains, such as healthcare, finance, transportation, and education.

Students take a core of computer science courses that provide a solid foundation for advanced work. Building on this base, students explore a variety of specializations from 6th semester onwards. In addition, students develop a broad appreciation for computer applications and the effects of computers on society via program electives, general education courses, and various free electives, which can be used to complete minors.

It is a four years program consisting of eight semesters. The maximum duration for completion of this degree is twelve semesters. The degree is awarded on completion of minimum 133 credit hours, including six credits for the project, with a passing CGPA of at least 2.0/4.0.
