Department of Artificial Intelligence  
  Dr. Asghar Ali Chandio


The Department of Artificial Intelligence has been established under the umbrella of the Faculty of Science, Quaid-e-Awam University of Engineering, Science and Technology, Nawabshah in 2021 by keeping in view the increasing demand of this field of study around the globe. The Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving.

The AI technologies are nowadays used in healthcare, automobiles, finance, surveillance, social media, entertainment, education, space exploration, gaming, robotics and agriculture. The ultimate goal of artificial intelligence is to create computer programs that can solve real-world problems and achieve goals like human beings. The major areas of AI include machine learning, neural networks, computer vision, robotics, natural language processing, expert systems and speech processing.

The Department is well equipped with advanced computer laboratories and qualified faculty. Currently, there are three (03) foreign qualified PhD faculty members in the Department, who are experts in the AI domain. Some faculty members are pursuing PhD degree in AI in well reputed international universities and are expected to join the department in near future. The PhD faculty in the department have strong academic collaborations with national/international institutions. This linkage is helpful for the exchange of students to other national/international institutions. The government of Pakistan is also encouraging and supporting the institutions offering degree in AI.

The Department offers the degree program in Bachelor of Science (Artificial Intelligence)
