Artificial Intelligence Program Overview

With the expertise of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, we’ve developed one of the nation’s first online artificial intelligence master’s programs to prepare engineers like you to take full advantage of opportunities in this field. The highly advanced curriculum is designed to deeply explore AI areas, including computer robotics, natural language processing, image processing, and more.

We have assembled a team of top-level researchers, scientists, and engineers to guide you through our rigorous online academic courses. Because we are a hub and frontrunner in artificial intelligence, we can tailor our artificial intelligence online master’s content to include the most up-to-date practices and offer core courses that address the AI-driven technologies, techniques, and issues that power our modern world.

The online master’s in Artificial Intelligence program balances theoretical concepts with the practical knowledge you can apply to real-world systems and processes. Courses deeply explore areas of AI, including robotics, natural language processing, image processing, and more—fully online.

At the program’s completion, you will:

  • Be able to describe the requirements, drivers, functions, components, interdependencies, risks, and quality factors for various systems and processes.
  • Possess the advanced skills needed to develop new artificial intelligence features.
  • Select courses to tailor your degree and gain the knowledge that works best for you.


We offer two program options for Artificial Intelligence; you can earn a Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence or a graduate certificate.
