Bachelor of Science in Artificial Intelligence

Introduction

The BS(AI) program gives the students an in-depth knowledge they need to transform large and complex scenarios into actionable decisions. The program and its curriculum focuses on how complex inputs - such as knowledge, vision, language and huge databases - can be used to make decisions to enhance human capabilities. The curriculum of the BS(AI) program includes coursework in computing, mathematics, automated reasoning, statistics, computational modelling, introduction to classical artificial intelligence languages and case studies, knowledge representation and reasoning, artificial neural networks, machine learning, natural language processing, vision and symbolic computation. The program also encourages students to take courses in ethics and social responsibility, with the opportunity to participate in long term projects in which artificial intelligence can be applied to solve problems that can change the world for the better — in areas like agriculture, defence, healthcare, governance, transportation, e-commerce, finance and education.

This Program is also offered for FSC, A-Level Pre-Medical Students

Summer Training (Pass/Fail grade; NIL credits): Every student is required to participate in a summer training program and submit a formal written report during the summer of Junior Year.

** Pre-Medical Students can also Apply **

  2. Minimum of 137 credit hours including a senior design project of 6 credit hours for pre-medical students, with minimum CGPA of 2.00

Duration

Minimum: 4 Years (8 Semesters)
Maximum: 6 Years (With One Year Extension)

Eligibility Criteria
  1. At least 50 % marks in Intermediate (HSSC), A-Level & equivalent examination with Mathematics or equivalent qualification with Mathematics certified by IBCC.

  2. At least 50% marks for FSc, A-level or equivalent in Pre-Medical. No need to appear in Board intermediate level (FSC or equivalent) exams to clear their mathematics courses.
