Analyze data with machine learning models

The Graduate Certificate in Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an online program focused on the development of AI tools for different purposes, including machine vision (e.g., robotics), machine learning for big data, data analytics, the internet of things, and information retrieval, in which data may include web-based medical text, cultural heritage documents, etc. Some professions or areas of interest include those that focus on using data analytics with machine learning models, computational chemistry, physics, business, finance or health science.

Regardless of the source of data, there is a strong need for AI/data analysts to interpret information, make decisions and visualize output accordingly. For the AI certificate program, you are not required to be a computer science major. The certificate requires the completion of 12 credit hours (4 courses). Students will complete two required courses and a number of electives will be offered to complete the certificate program of study. The selection of elective courses will be identified by the student in collaboration with their advisor.
