Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

The AIDA Secondary Major is designed in response to the rapidly developing fields of artificial intelligence and data analytics that are currently gaining unprecedented traction in industry as well as generating demand for qualified professionals in the job market. By integrating within the major discipline of the student, this secondary major aims to produce the next generation of graduates skilled with AI computational thinking and data analytics acumen in their chosen discipline to meet the needs of society, help improve efficiencies and augment human capabilities.

This secondary major comprises interdisciplinary and integrated programmes to equip students with a strong foundation in computer science, statistics and mathematics, so as to nurture them to make use of AIDA techniques to solve contemporary problems in a discipline of their choice.

Each academic programme offering the option of this secondary major will incorporate a block of AIDA subjects (such as programming, mathematics, statistics, big data, AI and machine learning) into the study of the academic programme focusing on a particular discipline or domain. Students will complete their study within the normal programme duration and graduate with their respective bachelor’s degree, equipped with technical skills related to AIDA, coupled with the domain knowledge from a block of subjects either specially designed, or chosen from the corresponding academic programme, in addition to the GUR subjects. An Integrated Capstone Project (ICP) will be included, with the aim of developing the capabilities of a student in analysing and solving complex and potential real-life problems, as well as training them in skills related to systematic development and documentation of a significant piece of work.
