Program description

The Master of Artificial Intelligence (MAI) is a course-based Master's degree designed for students who want to learn how to integrate and apply Artificial Intelligence in a number of industries. The Master of Artificial Intelligence (MAI) is a four-term, course-based Master's programme offered jointly by the Department of Computer Science (Faculty of Science) and the Department of Computer Engineering (Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences) for students with a background in computer science, computer engineering, or scientific computing who want to specialise in artificial intelligence.

The basic course selection is meant to provide the foundations for AI as well as an overview of different areas in AI. Electives courses allow students to delve further into certain fields of AI such as robots, machine learning, and image processing. The programme differs from the previous course-based options MSc in Computer Science and MASc in Computer Engineering in that it places a greater emphasis on artificial intelligence and related disciplines while placing a lesser emphasis on other areas of computer science and computer engineering. Please keep in mind that there is no co-op/work-term component and no subsidies in this programme, which necessitates additional expenses in addition to tuition.
