Artificial Intelligence and Robotics


Artificial intelligence and robotics programs prepare people to create machines or software that imitate human behavior.

Artificial intelligence and robotics programs include topics such as:


A few community colleges and two-year schools offer certificate and associate degree programs in artificial intelligence and robotics. An associate degree program usually takes two years of full-time study.

A few colleges and universities offer bachelor's degrees in artificial intelligence and robotics. A bachelor's degree usually takes about four years of full-time study.

A few universities offer graduate degrees in artificial intelligence and robotics. A master's degree typically requires two years of study beyond a bachelor's degree. Doctoral (PhD) degree programs usually require two or more years of study beyond the master's degree.

Things to Know

Although most artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics programs are offered through computer science departments, they are also offered through engineering or computational biology departments.

It is more likely to find robotics programs than it is to find combined AI and robotics programs.

Programs in AI and robotics train you to become a skilled computer programmer. This allows you to work as a computer scientist outside the field of AI and robotics.
