Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Applied Artificial Intelligence 文理學士(應用人工智能)

BASc(AppliedAI)

Short Description

The BASc(AppliedAI) programme emphasises the intellectual underpinning of AI applications in diverse areas, with a philosophical and ethical dimension.  It aims to give students both fundamental and practical knowledge in the design and construction of intelligent systems so that they can apply their skills in a variety of career settings.

Supported by a wide range of courses in computer science, geography, mathematics, psychology, statistics, and urban studies, which emphasise problem-based learning, the programme features five concentrations: AI technology, AI in business and finance, AI in medicine, AI in smart city, or AI in neurocognitive science.

Students will learn to transfer interdisciplinary scientific knowledge into a wide range of integrated applications and technological innovations, so as to develop the intellectual capacity essential to meeting new challenges and resolve new problems in the future.  Upon graduation, students will be exceptionally well-equipped to create artificial intelligence products with transformational impacts in different industries.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2021-22 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
