Course Details

Artificial Intelligence (AI) focuses on building and training equipment that finds solutions to problems that often require human ingenuity. Artificial Intelligence programs can be enabled through machine learning, in-depth learning, or operating rules. Being a new field, AI comes with both benefits and potential risks. It can increase jobs and reduce human error, but it can also lead to the disappearance of other types of jobs and the creation of new ones. Additionally, some scientists have expressed concern about future AI devices, although we have not yet been able to develop them. Some of the topics you can expect to study during Bachelor's in Artificial Intelligence are: computer vision, natural language processing, speech recognition, software engineering principles, autonomous systems, machine learning, image analysis, signature and sound processing, ethics and social impact.

This four-year BSc Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) degree focuses on building robust and usable systems. The aim to teach people not only how to use mitigation tools and techniques, but also how to build the next generation of software tools that other software developers will use. This course aims to provide a well-balanced balance of educational support and practical experience, strongly informed by the research technology of the academic staff. All Year 3 students participate in a year-long group project, in which they work together to address a larger, more realistic problem. 4th-year students run a large, year-round project for each thesis. You need to have advanced knowledge of statistics, algorithms, statistics, and career opportunities in Artificial Intelligence. Another requirement is that you have strong language skills. After graduation, AI students get a job as AI researchers, AI specialists, machine learning engineers, computer programmers, robot engineers, etc.
