Artificial Intelligence Program

Program Description

The program BSc in Artificial Intelligence at UoB is associated with the college of engineering. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the attempt to build artificial systems that have intelligent behavior. The students study this program from the engineering perspective at UoB, rather than computer science alone. There are two main directions in this program. One is to enable students to comprehend natural intelligence through the utilization of computer models. The other enables students to develop methods and innovation to build systems capable of intelligent decisions and engineering actions.

In this way, the AI that students learn is both a science and engineering disciplines. Applications of AI range from “smart” controllers for household devices to computers that can converse in natural languages such as English, play computer games, conduct intelligent web searches, or act as the brain of a robot. The recent major trend is the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 for establishing a “smart factory”. It is an integration of Computer Engineering and smart solutions, for the automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and cognitive computing. At UoB, the students learn and experience them during their study for BSc in AINT.

Admission Requirements

For direct entry into the College of Engineering, the student should have General Education Diploma (12th standard) or certified equivalent with overall score of C and minimum of grade D in Pure Mathematics, English and (Physics or Chemistry).

The student should also successfully complete the General Foundation program with an overall score of 65% in the following areas:

  • English proficiency 

  • Study skills

  • Math

  • Information Technology

  1. To be exempted from the GFP (English Component), a minimum score of 5.00 in IELTS certificate or equivalent is required.

  2. To be exempted from the GFP (IT Component), an ICDL Certificate in English or its equivalent is required.

Program Objectives
  • Graduates are expected to succeed in a career in Artificial Intelligence in Engineering

  • Graduates are expected to contribute to society through research or professional and ethical practice in Artificial Intelligence in Engineering

Student Outcomes
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex computing in engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, mathematics, and computing

  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce computing-based solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors

  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in computing-based engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies

Career Path

Artificial intelligence program graduates can begin their career path in public or private organizations. in governmental sector, they can find an opportunity in the Ministry of Transportation, Information Technology and Communications, and also in communications and information technology departments in government organizations and in the Military and Security services sectors. In the private sector, they can work in the information and communication technology sector, and in the Organizations that supervise these sectors. As for students who prefer independence and enjoy the potential for self-success, they may start their own businesses. And that is in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
