Launched in 2019, prg.ai Minor has established itself as a sought after programme that provides students with a continuously updated course offer and an opportunity to become part of a lively interdisciplinary community and to get acquainted with the key players of the Prague AI ecosystem.
It aims at driven, tech-savvy students already enrolled at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (MFF) and the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSV) at Charles University (CUNI), the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEE) and the Faculty of Information Technology (FIT) at the Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU).
With prg.ai Minor, you will gain an essential in-depth understanding of artificial intelligence (AI), the practical skills necessary to apply it in any area of your interest and connections to some of the best AI teachers and researchers from two prestigious Prague universities.
prg.ai Minor brings together a carefully selected set of existing bachelor or master courses. In other words, the content, knowledge and expertise have already been amassed and shared at Prague universities.
What prg.ai Minor adds is (1) the cherry-picking of the best courses, (2) the motivation for you to enrol in a specialised AI course and for teachers to improve and scale up their classes, and (3) a strong incentive to build tight collaborations across universities.
There are four guarantors representing each of the participating faculties. Each is responsible for the selection of applicants from their faculty and evaluates them on the basis of:
“To give students a diversity of research and problem challenges, teachers and also fellow students is a key to their future success.”
“Interdisciplinarity is the key - whichever background you come from - as is networking across fields.”
"Apart from exposing passionate students to a great diversity of topics and fellows, I'm also excited about the networking and collaboration opportunities among the faculties and educators."
“prg.ai Minor is a unique example of interdisciplinary cooperation among academic institutions and a great occasion to meet people with different backgrounds.”
“Education is one of prg.ai's main priorities and also my own. I am thrilled to work with promising students while they embark on the best AI journey top Prague universities currently offer.”
