Program Description

Data Science and Artificial Intelligence


This program brings together two main areas of computing, Data Science & Artificial Intelligence in an integrative fashion. Data Science & Artificial Intelligence are two integrated fields of smart systems, whereby the Data Science focuses on statistical techniques and the Artificial Intelligence concentrates on smart algorithms.

The Data Science & the Artificial Intelligence jobs are among the most attractive jobs in the twenty-first century. There is an urgent need to fill the shortfall in order to achieve success for the work of institutions in all economic, health, educational, cultural and other sectors. This need was manifested in the urgent need to exploit big data of all kinds in light of the fourth industrial revolution. It is worth mentioning that the jobs of Data and Artificial Intelligence Sciences are among the best paid jobs in the IT sector locally, regionally and globally.

The Program of the Data Science & the Artificial Intelligence qualifies students and provides them with general skills in the computer world, data science skills, and smart analytics skills that are widely applicable in different fields to work in various jobs. These diverse jobs include working in the technology, communications, the pharmaceutical industries and the financial services sectors, specially the fields of e-commerce, commercial and industrial consulting, processes research, marketing, and scientific research. The student may also pursue his/her studies to obtain the M.A and PhD degrees in related specializations. In addition to this, there is a need for the Data Science specialists to work in mathematical and political analyses and the data analysis of platforms and social media. This can be done by developing and building algorithms and models for data analysis and extracting knowledge from them to interpret the past and the present and predict the future.

The student is granted a Bachelor’s degree in Data Science & Artificial Intelligence after completing 132 credit hours of compulsory and optional.
