As computer systems increase their complexity and sophistication, the demand for intelligent advanced applications also increases in proportion. It is now common practice to incorporate intelligent capabilities in the design of any computer application, from web-based intelligent search engines to standalone intelligent applications. The objective of this three-year degree programme is to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills required to be successful in building the much-needed intelligent computer systems.
