Overview
Description

The world is changing fast. Artificial intelligence (AI) has come to define society today in ways we never anticipated. For example, AI makes it possible for us to unlock our smartphones with our faces, ask our virtual assistants questions and receive vocalized answers. The World Economic Forum’s “The Future of Jobs 2018” report predicts that there will be 58 million new jobs in AI by 2022. Companies and individuals that do not keep up with some of the major tech trends run the risk of being left behind. To promptly equip our students for this challenge, the pioneering “Engineering+AI” program is designed as an extended major to enrich major study with cross-disciplinary AI technology applications.

Engineering+AI students are guaranteed the study of AI at the time of admission. The curriculum is cross-disciplinary and practical. They will learn solid knowledge in an engineering discipline of their choice PLUS innovative application of AI in their major areas. In addition, students will gain cross-disciplinary problem-solving skills and professional insights through a Design Thinking course and Professional Seminars in AI.  The Capstone Project, with strong AI components and sponsorship from industry, enables students to practice AI applications on real world problems. Students take approximately one additional course per term.  Upon satisfactory competition, students will earn a “BEng in one of the engineering disciplines with an Extended Major in Artificial Intelligence”. 

Remarks: New program. Full program details and curriculum will be finalized and announced in due course.
