Artificial Intelligence

Robots that reason. Computers that think through human problems. If you’re pursuing our AI degree, that’s part of what you’ll learn. The other part? How to use your work for social good: understanding what it takes to build machines that can make decisions and enhance human capabilities, ethically and responsibly. With a curriculum heavy on computer science, math, statistics, computational modeling, machine learning and symbolic computation, you’ll get an education that prepares you to make a difference in fields like health care, transportation and education.
