The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Applied Artificial Intelligence is a three-year direct honours programme designed to nurture ICT professionals who are competent in developing, applying, and deploying AI solutions.

Artificial intelligence has been identified as a key component in Singapore’s Smart Nation Journey to transform the economy. In tandem with Singapore's plans to be a global leader in advancing AI solutions by 2030, the demand for machine learning engineers is expected to surge. This specialised programme focuses on implementing AI within software systems and provides in-depth coverage on three focus areas:

  • Core-Software Engineering is the bedrock of foundational software development, essential for mastery of machine learning skills. This also includes topics such as cloud computing, big data, and DevOps.

  • Core-Machine Learning will equip you with skills on how AI models can be developed, applied, and deployed.

  • Professional Skills that will equip you with the relevant soft skills to express your ideas clearly and confidently to different stakeholders. These are skills expected of a working professional.
