MS in Artificial Intelligence

About the Program

The Artificial Intelligence master's degree program is designed as a 30-credit hour curriculum that give students a comprehensive framework for artificial intelligence with one of 4 concentration areas: (1) Computer Vision, (2) Intelligent Interaction, (3) Machine Learning, and (4) Knowledge Management and Reasoning.

Students will engage in an extensive core intended curriculum to develop depth in all the core concepts that build a foundation for artificial intelligence theory and practice. Also, they will be given the opportunity to build on the core knowledge of AI by taking a variety of elective courses selected from colleges throughout campus to explore key contextual areas or more complex technical AI applications.

The program will be accessible to both full-time and part-time students, aiming to train students who aspire to have AI research and development (R&D) or leadership careers in industry. To accommodate the needs of working professionals who might be interested in this degree program, the course offerings for the MS in AI will be in the late afternoon and evening hours to allow students to earn the degree through part-time study. The program may be completed entirely on campus, entirely online, or through a combination of on-campus and online courses.
