GC197 - Graduate Certificate in Foundation of Artificial Intelligence
Plan: GC197 - Graduate Certificate in Foundation of Artificial Intelligence
Campus: City Campus
Program Learning Outcomes Statement
Upon completion of this graduate certificate you will have achieved the following program learning outcomes. Each of these learning outcomes is developed in much greater depth in the Master of Artificial Intelligence degree.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):
Enabling Knowledge (PLO1)
You will gain skills as you apply knowledge with creativity and initiative to new situations. In doing so, you will:
- Demonstrate familiarity with a body of knowledge that includes recent developments in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science and Information Technology;
- Use some fundamental and applied Artificial Intelligence knowledge, methodologies and modern computational tools;
- Recognise some principles and methods applicable to Artificial Intelligence.
Critical Analysis (PLO2)
You will begin to learn how to accurately and objectively examine Computer Science, Information Technology (IT) and statistical concepts, evidence, theories or situations, in particular to:
- Analyse and model requirements and constraints for the purpose of designing and implementing software artefacts and IT systems;
- Evaluate and compare designs of software artefacts and IT systems on the basis of organisational and user requirements.
Problem Solving (PLO3)
You will begin to acquire the capability to analyse problems and synthesise suitable solutions as you learn to:
- Design and implement software solutions that accommodate specified requirements and constraints, based on analysis or modelling or requirements specification.
You will begin to learn to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences through a range of modes and media, in particular to:
- Interpret propositions, justify conclusions and defend professional decisions to both IT and non-IT personnel via technical reports of professional standard and technical presentations.
You will be required to accept responsibility for your own learning and make informed decisions about judging and adopting appropriate behaviour in professional and social situations. This includes accepting the responsibility for independent learning and a high level of accountability. Specifically, you will begin to learn to:
- Effectively apply relevant standards, ethical considerations, and an understanding of legal and privacy issues to designing Artificial Intelligence software, applications and IT systems;
- Reflect on experience and improve your own future practice;
- Locate and use data and information and evaluate its quality with respect to its authority and relevance.
