Artificial Intelligence Certificate

Department of Computer Science, College of Information Science & Technology

Vision Statement

The objective of the certificate in artificial intelligence is to expose students to the principles and technologies used to embody machines with human-like intelligent capabilities and to enable the machines to assist humans in performing complex and hazardous tasks.  Students completing this certificate program have an opportunity to learn as well as perform hands-on experiments in different areas of artificial intelligence, including automated software systems such as software agents, multi-agent and multi-robot systems, machine vision and image processing technologies, neural network-based adaptive software systems, heuristics and stochastic optimization techniques for critical decision making and machine learning and knowledge engineering techniques that embed intelligence in computers and information systems.
