Trustworthy AI is a new and fast-growing field that combines Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning with cybersecurity and privacy, two of the most in-demand subfields of computer science.

The complex nature of AI systems creates important challenges such as safety, security, privacy, fairness and ethics that must be addressed to ensure their trustworthiness which in turn will help accelerate their adoption for economic growth and future innovations.

This fully online graduate certificate program is designed primarily for working professionals who want to advance their careers. This is a unique program, one of the few of its kind in the nation.

In addition to machine learning and deep learning, online courses will cover topics such as robustness, reliability, security, privacy, fairness, accountability, transparency and ethics in AI systems. Students will gain knowledge and skills in trustworthy development, testing and deployment of AI systems.

This certificate program can also be stacked with the following Atlanta Campus master's degree programs:

The program is designed to help professionals advance or stay relevant in their current technical fields by developing demonstrable skills in the fast-growing areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning.



The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the demand for qualified cybersecurity professionals, like information security analysts, will rise by 28% by 2026 and there is a severe national and global workforce shortage in the field. The State of Georgia and Metro Atlanta have a large number of job openings with very low supply of workers with the needed expertise in cybersecurity, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
