The world is changing fast; artificial intelligence (AI) has come to define society today in ways we never anticipated. For example, AI makes it possible for us to unlock our smartphones with our faces, ask our virtual assistants questions and receive vocalized answers. The World Economic Forum’s “The Future of Jobs 2018” report predicts that there will be 58 million new jobs in AI by 2022. Companies and individuals that do not keep up with some of the major tech trends run the risk of being left behind. To promptly equip our students for this challenge, the pioneering “Major+AI” program is designed as an extended major to enrich major study with cross-disciplinary AI technology applications.
Students interested in Major+AI should declare their Extended Major -
(i) upon admission to HKUST for guaranteed enrollment in the Extended Major with a Major
(ii) during the opt-in arrangement of the Schools they are admitted.
