HKUST Virtual Information Day | Oct 17

Posted by heo

I am writing to bring you a great news that this year, HKUST broke new ground by introducing an “Extended Major” in Artificial Intelligence (AI), not to study AI as a standalone general area, but to enrich major study in Science and Engineering with cross-disciplinary AI technology applications.

 

Foreseeing that demands in graduate hires and research in AI would increase in a way we never anticipated, the following two new programs would allow students to learn the best of AI when it is in the climax of development flexibly and are now accepting application for 2021 Intake:

 

  • Science-A with an Extended Major in Artificial Intelligence
  • Engineering with an Extended Major in Artificial Intelligence

 

Since these brand-new programs are just launched, I would like to invite you and your students once again to join us at the HKUST Virtual Information Day to be held on October 17, 2020 (Sat) from 12NN to 8PM. You can learn all that you need about our new and existing programs through live talks, virtual booths and admissions consultation.
