The School, established before 1999, provides a well-rounded education in computing/information, multimedia, virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR), design, and artificial intelligence (AI), which addresses the needs of the society with the fast changing global industry. The research interests and expertise of our staff span over a diverse set of current and emerging technologies, with combined experiences from industry and academia.
Computer and information technologies have influenced almost every product/service in human life and have been useful in many professions in the Information Age. The impact will be more profound as we move towards the Intelligence Age. The job market will therefore continue to be in demand.
Because digitization can help in many other areas, collaboration in both research and curriculum development with other Schools is strong. In particular, collaboration in Artificial Intelligence with Design, Business and Hospitality Management, Social Sciences, Health Sciences, and Languages is being established. The need in product/services are diverse, so that one can work for many different applications and have the flexibility to move to other professions in one's career.
The gift of intelligence have enabled human beings to invent and develop new technologies and many powerful tools. While technologies have sometimes been misused to do harm, moral values and social responsibilities call us to better serve the society as we learn to master new technologies and to develop new and value-adding services and products. We strive to motivate students through education to lead a career that, in addition to making a living, is also able to contribute to the common good, which in itself can be very rewarding.
