Through collaboration with industry, the Software Engineering Technology – Artificial Intelligence (AI) program will provide our students with skills in state-of-art design and AI application development technologies. Software is taking the planet by storm and AI-driven technologies are at the center of it. AI’s global economic impact is expected to reach trillions by 2025. AI is set to become the new database for next-generation applications.
Our Software Engineering Technology – Artificial Intelligence program aligns well with the newest technology trends in the software industry, namely “Augmented Analytics,” “AI-Driven Development,” and “Autonomous Things.” The coursework emphasizes modern software design and AI frameworks, machine learning, data visualization, big data fundamentals, natural language processing, image recognition, recommender systems, software bots, digital ethics and privacy guidelines within AI solutions.
To round out the technical focus of the curriculum, the Software Engineering Technology – Artificial Intelligence program includes one software development project. For this real-world business application, you put into action all the technical, systems and business skills acquired during your courses to build AI-enhanced software solutions for automating, classifying, predicting, recommending, and understanding processes and data.
The graduates of Artificial Intelligence program can work on all software projects that involve intelligent use of data, such as machine learning, natural language processing, recommendation systems, image recognition, data analytics, big data, and more. The graduates can find employment in various financial, health, social and multimedia, insurance, telecommunications, large retail, tech start-up, transportation, and government companies and institutions.
