Bachelor of Science in Artificial Intelligence

Programme Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Artificial Intelligence program is rigorous, introducing students to machine learning with opportunities to explore theoretical and hands-on learning and understand natural language processing with opportunities to pursue full-time, part-time, or online.

TAU’s bachelor’s course in Artificial Intelligence gives students the exposure to design and build applications that make decisions, reason about data, and communicate with humans. With cutting-edge infrastructure and labs, students learn to use creative thinking, algorithmic design, and coding skills to build futuristic AI systems.

We provide students with the necessary technical training and a strong foundation in machine learning, computer vision technology, and natural language processing while building critical thinking, communication, digital fluency, and teamwork skills.

The bachelor in AI program prepares students to excel in AI engineer or programmer roles or continue further education.

It enables students to work productively and recognize the social impact of artificial intelligence with exposure to the ethical, privacy, moral, and legal implications of artificial intelligence technologies.

TAUs graduate students of the BSc in Artificial Intelligence program are tech-savvy and skilled in machine learning and automated reasoning to build the AI systems of the future.

It enables students to gain expertise in the core concepts like data structures, programming, computing systems, algorithm design, performance, and computational metrics and master the basics of discrete mathematics, logic, theorem proving and explanation, probability and statistics, and optimization.
