Fresh undergraduate students from Artificial Intelligence / Software Engineering / Data Science background will also find this programme worthwhile as a path to further enhance their academic qualifications.

Curriculum

Modules & Project:

The programme comprises 3 pre-requisite modules (for non-Computing students), 10 modules including 3 elective modules and a Project.

Pre-Requisite Modules

(For non-Computing students: to be completed upon 1st month of the programme)

  • Programming in Python
  • Data Structures and Algorithms
  • Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence

Core Modules

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Image Processing and Computer Vision
  • Fuzzy Logic
  • Applied Machine Learning
  • Computational Intelligence Optimization
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Research Methodology in Computing and Engineering

Project

Elective Modules (Choose 3) *

  • Applied Robotics
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Expert Systems and Knowledge Engineering
  • Business Intelligence Systems
  • Multivariate Methods for Data Analysis
  • Deep Learning

 

*Elective modules may be pre-selected for students at the beginning of the semester. If students wish to change these pre-selected elective modules, they can choose from the available modules offered in the semester OR among the intensive delivery modules – however such changes may prolong the study duration.

 

Project:

You will be expected to conduct effective research in relation to Artificial Intelligence for both academic and industry purposes. Either route will require you to plan and conduct effective academic research, and produce one academic paper, consultancy report or academic paper in relation to an aspect of Artificial Intelligence.

Entry Requirements

General Requirement

Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence*

  • Bachelor’s degree with minimum CGPA of 2.75 out of 4.00, or its equivalent qualification as acceptable by the Senate.
  • Bachelor’s degree with CGPA 2.50 out of 4.00, but below CGPA 2.75; can be accepted with rigorous assessment (include test, interview or portfolio).
  • Bachelor’s degree with CGPA below 2.50 out of 4.00, or qualification which is equivalent can be accepted with minimum 5 years relevant working experience in related field.
  • English Requirements: IELTS 5.0

Notes * Applicants without a Computing-related Bachelor’s degree must pass the pre-requisite modules to continue with the Master’s Degree.

English Requirements

Only Applicable to International Students

Please note that under Ministry of Education regulations, only students who have achieved the minimum requirement in the English Language proficiency assessment as indicated above will be allowed to continue their studies in the main study programme. Students who do not have the required English Language achievement may apply for a student visa on conditional basis and are allowed to enrol in an English Language Certification programme at APU upon arrival in Malaysia and, subsequently, appear for the IELTS/TOEFL/PTE/MUET assessment. Students who are unable to obtain the required level of English Competency during the maximum 12 months’ period, will not be allowed to pursue their studies in the main programme and will have to return to their home country.

Students from English speaking countries and those with qualifications taught in English (previous Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree taught in English) are exempted from English requirements. Applications for exemption must be accompanied by supporting documents.

Note: The above entry requirements may differ for specific programmes based on the latest programme standards published by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
