Students graduating from our information science and technology with artificial intelligence program will be able to choose many different roles; becoming Information Technology (IT) and Information Systems (IS) consultants, project planners, project managers, interface designers, information systems researchers, web developers, and systems analysts. They can also work with companies developing AI technology. In addition to the General Education outcomes, students will be given the opportunity to:

  1. Perform research emphasizing creativity, independent learning, and scientific methods in a chosen area of information technology.
  2. Design, implement and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program’s discipline.
  3. Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
  4. Demonstrate the application of professional, informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
  5. Demonstrate proper behaviors as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program’s discipline.
  6. Account for analyzed user needs in the selection, creation, integration, evaluation, and administration of computing-based systems.
  7. Perform tasks related to the creation and development of robotic systems.
  8. Perform tasks related to the creation and development of Artificial Intelligence systems.
  9. Develop a product or process by applying skills of programming, web, database, human-computer interaction, and networking and security tools.
  10. Examine the principles and techniques of organizing and interpreting empirical data to develop a thesis-driven paper that demonstrates critical and creative thinking based on relevant evidence and analytical reasoning.
