What does your studies involve?

AI is shaking the field of technology as we speak. In addition to its impact on the future, it already has a significant impact on our everyday life.

The demand for AI specialists with hands-on experience and a deep understanding of these tools that can harness the power of AI in different usage scenarios is growing substantially.

Today AI is in the form of tools and libraries that doesn't require scientific background to use them. Programming skills are not required to start the studies however students will pick up the skills required as most of the courses in AI include programming and working with development environments.
