International innovators on the way to the top

In the autumn of 2020, a group of 55 students started their studies at Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK) in the new, international Artificial Intelligence education. The group includes students of 15 different nationalities, and almost half of them come from outside the EU. The background of the students is really versatile; there are students straight from school to those changing careers. The share of female students is nearly 30 %, which is a positively large number compared to traditional engineering degree programmes.
