About the Program

The Bachelor of Applied Technology in Artificial Intelligence & Robotics provides the latest information and real-world experience. It includes courses developed by large companies such as Nvidia, AWS, Intel, Apple, and IBM to ensure students obtain the knowledge and finest tools available in most aspects of applied artificial intelligence. In addition, students have complete access to the latest corporate and open-source tools available. One of the defining characteristics of HCC’s degree is the use of world-class AI Laboratories to explore and experience coordinated challenges, contests, and hand’s-on projects. The mentor component of the supervising/assisting industry professional helps validate important skill acquisition throughout the program while actively involving students in projects that range from global issues to local neighborhood problem-solving. Graduates will qualify for entry-level AI jobs in a variety of areas, including machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, business intelligence, customer support automation, recommendation systems, sales, and product support information systems, internal automation projects, healthcare support automation, data analytics, IIOT/Robotics, cybersecurity and more.
