This unique minor can be paired with any undergraduate major at Case Western Reserve. Learn more about the minor in Applied Data Science. 

Artificial Intelligence

The program in artificial intelligence offers an undergraduate minor. The core of the minor introduces students to the techniques of artificial intelligence programming and the basic theoretical concepts of artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, and automated reasoning. Within the minor, a student may choose a track pertaining to science and engineering or a track pertaining to artificial intelligence and cognition. Students who take the science and engineering track will have the opportunity to build significant intelligent systems. They will acquire a solid understanding of methods for knowledge representation and automated reasoning. The science and engineering track provides an opportunity for a student to acquire knowledge that is useful in areas such as management and engineering.

The artificial intelligence and cognition track will give students the opportunity to explore the relationships between computational processes and the study of mind and language. Studies of the relationships between these areas have led to developments in robotics, mathematical neuroscience, visual processing systems, parallel processing systems, mathematical and experimental psychology, and linguistics.

A minor consists of five courses. Every student who takes the minor in artificial intelligence must take the two courses, ENGR 131 (Elementary Computer Programming) and EECS 391 (Introduction to Artificial Intelligence). Students who take the artificial intelligence minor must also take one of two minor tracks.

Every student who takes the minor in artificial intelligence must take: (1) Either ENGR 131 (Elementary Computer Programming) or EECS 132, and (2) EECS 391 (Introduction to Artificial Intelligence). Students who take the artificial intelligence minor must also take one of two minor tracks:
