1. MEDICAL BIOTECHNOLOGY
The field of biotechnology is evolving quickly with innovative technologies. The course covers the concept of biomarkers, its application in diagnostics and therapeutics. Topics such as pharmacogenomics, gene therapy, medical imaging, regenerative medicine, prosthetics, and point of care devices are at the interface of emerging medical technologies and applied biotechnology. This course will introduce students to these emerging trends and technologies in the field of medical biotechnology.
2. INTRODUCTION TO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
This is an applied course in artificial intelligence computing with a focus on teaching students how to design and implement real-world AI applications to intelligently interact with the surroundings. Machine learning, robotics, data mining, business intelligence, analytics, knowledge representation, and planning are all offsprings of AI that broke away from AI at some point. All these topics share a common goal; to create systems that learn from experience, as humans do. Topics include knowledge representation, inference, Heuristic search, intelligent agent, supervised and unsupervised learning, classification, predictive analytics, recommender systems, logic programming, and elements of game programming.
