This is the first version of the 2022-23 General Catalog. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The undergraduate Certificate in Artificial Intelligence Modeling and Simulations requires a minimum of 18 s.h. of credit. Students must earn a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in coursework for the certificate. The certificate may be earned by any student admitted to the University of Iowa who is not concurrently enrolled in a UI graduate or professional degree program.

Students are strongly encouraged to participate in at least one workshop related to Python, R, or high performance and parallel computing offered by the Information Technology Services Research Services (ITS-RS) department, and in the HACKUIOWA hackathon organized by the UI Hydroinformatics Lab.

Mechanical engineering students may use the certificate as a tailored engineering focus area by adding an additional eligible course. In addition, mechanical engineering students may earn the Certificate in Artificial Intelligence Modeling and Simulations while they complete the mechanical engineering design, the manufacturing, or the robotics and autonomous systems focus area for their major.
