The AI Lab is always looking for bright, energetic computer science
graduate students who are not afraid of developing real systems for
complex real-world problems.
The pressure and expectations will be high for those who work in the
UIC AI Laboratory, but so are the rewards. Learning applied research
and state-of-the-art development skills makes our successful M.S. and
Ph.D. graduates highly sought after by leading edge technical companies.
Minimum qualifications for our graduate students includes the following:
Solid undergraduate preparation in the field of computer
science. Occasionally, exceptional candidates from other
fields are accepted, but computer science is strongly perferred.
Excellent programming skills. Development work is predominantly done
in Java and C++ under a variety of different of operating systems.
Strong communication skills. Foreign graduates must have a minimum
TOEFL score of 620.
A minimum combined GRE score of 2000.
To be considered for a research assistantship you first need to
apply to the CS graduate
program as a computer science student. Electrical and computer
engineering students will not be considered for assistantships.
Students should designate "Artificial Intelligence" as their
interest area. We would also like you to fill out our
form which will be entered into our database and will alert
us to your application.
