The Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering program is offered and administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering. The objective of the program is to educate students in the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence, deep learning, online learning, algorithms and data structure to solve engineering problems.
Students in the Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering program follow the same curriculum for the first year as other engineering students.
Students entering the Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering program must have completed the entire first-year program in Engineering, with no outstanding credits to be taken, and have a Year Weighted Average (YWA) of at least 75%. First consideration will be given to applicants with a minimum grade of 60% in each course of the first-year engineering program.
Second Year Program
Numerical and Mathematical Methods 2270A/B, Numerical and Mathematical Methods 2276A/B or Numerical and Mathematical Methods 2277A/B, Statistical Sciences 2141A/B, SE 2205A/B, SE 2251A/B, Writing 2130F/G, up to 3.0 credits from the student’s core engineering discipline*.
Third Year Program
Fourth Year Program
Fifth Year Program
ECE 4450A/B, AISE 4050, ES 4498G/F, up to 3.5 credits from the student’s core engineering discipline*, 0.5 credit from AISE technical electives**
* The ‘core engineering discipline’ refers to the accredited engineering degree being taken concurrently with the AISE degree program. Required technical and non-technical core courses, as well as approved technical and non-technical electives are listed under the AISE dual degree option for each engineering discipline.
** AISE technical electives refer to a list of AI-based technical courses approved by the AISE program committee. The list consists of AI-based courses offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Science at Western. The list will be updated every year.
