The Department of Artificial Intelligence was the first one at NURE who broak a trail to Europe through concording the curricula with European partners and introducing modern IT technologies, piloting European practices and projects and, in practice, gave good start in life to graduates in European universities and companies due to double-degree programs.
The aim of the major is the target training of specialists having valuable knowledge in future technology – Artificial Intelligence (AI) – among the huge mass of specialists in Computer Science and Information Technology, which will distinguish them on the international market of IT services.
Besides the basic fields of study in IT (programming, data bases, cloud and mobile technologies) and the AI systems and methods, special attention is paid to the two profile directions: Data Mining (which is already included into Data Science) and various Intelligent Web technologies.
Students use modern technologies in education, take part in joint international projects with students from European partner universities, have possibility to learn some courses in English.
The curricular at the AI Department are developed on the basis of international standards in Computer Science and IT and are adapted to modern and future need of IT market.
Since 2022 academic year the Master’s programme Artificial Intelligence Systems will be modernised to assure obtaining by students new skills in detecting hybrid threats and countering hybrid attacks in accordance with the developments of European universities within the framework of the Erasmus+ CBHE project “Academic Response to Hybrid Threats – WARN (610133-EPP-1-2019-1-FI–EPPKA2-CBHE–JP)” where NURE is the national coordinator.
The Department trains students of three qualification levels:
- Bachelor’s Degree in the field #122 “Computer Science and Information Technology”, major – Artificial Intelligence (АI);
- Bachelor’s Degree in the field #122 “Computer Science and Information Technology”, major – Computer Science (CS) ;
- Master’s Degree in Artificial Intelligence Systems (AIS) ;
- PhD in “Artificial Intelligence Systems and Tools” – 05.13.
