Our four year BSc Computer Science Honours degree with a specialism in Artificial Intelligence is oriented to providing computer science students with the latest techniques in Artificial Intelligence. We aim to teach people not just how to deploy cutting edge tools and techniques, but how to build the next generation of software tools that others will use. This programme aims to give a well-integrated balance of theoretical underpinnings and practical experience, strongly informed by the research expertise of our academic staff.
You will cover software development, an introduction to computer systems, web design and databases. In addition you will learn how to create apps for mobile devices.
You will continue with data structures and algorithms, Interaction Design, looking at various programming languages, databases, web programming, discrete mathematics and software design. In addition you will learn how to program for hardware devices such as a raspberry pi using assembly.
You will study topics such as artificial intelligence, data communications, networking, operating systems as well as more formal aspects of computing. You will also undertake a group project that spans the whole year of study.
You will study advanced topics such as Data Mining , Machine Learning, Intelligent Robots and Biologically Inspired Computation. In addition you will also undertake a major individual project in Artificial Intelligence.
The market for graduates having artificial intelligence skills must grow with the increasing demands from companies, public sector organisations and research institutions for employees with skills in specialist areas with clear applications in industry – including data mining, machine learning, and pattern recognition.
We envisage graduates from this BSc programme getting jobs with software houses, IT companies, research and development divisions of companies, financial services organisations, defence contractors or government IT departments and as researchers or research students within universities.
Dubai is diversifying away from an oil economy towards the emerging knowledge economy, and a BSc in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) is just the kind of specialist IT education provision that Dubai city planners are looking for to provide the next generation of knowledge workers here.
