Faculty of Engineering launches Bachelor of Artificial Intelligence: Systems and Technologies

2018-10-15

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering will launch a new four-year undergraduate programme in Artificial Intelligence: Systems and Technologies (JUPAS code: 4468) in the 2019-20 academic year with the aim of nurturing professionals and leaders for the age of artificial intelligence.

AI becomes an emerging engineering discipline that focuses on the technological innovations in enabling computing systems to behave and discover new knowledge with human-like intelligence. The new programme aims to equip students with the capabilities of designing and implementing AI systems and technologies that can analyze, reason about, and infer knowledge from massive information, backed by rigorous foundations of data structures, statistics, algorithms, distributed computing, etc.  Such capabilities enable students to develop cutting-edge AI solutions that are of practical interest to academics, industry, and society.  The programme offers four optional specialised streams for students to choose according to their own interests including Biomedical Intelligence, Intelligent Multimedia Processing, Large-scale Artificial Intelligence - Theory and Systems, and Intelligent Manufacturing and Robotics.

According to the Innovation and Technology Bureau, it is expected that Greater Bay Area opens the door to many career opportunities for people with knowledge and skills in high-end technologies.   To meet the rapid growth and demand of society, CUHK aims to train talented AI engineers/scientists for the following industries: biomedical engineering/science, information and computing technologies, manufacturing and robotic, as well as intelligence multimedia processing for various Internet companies.
