prg.ai Minor

Starting September 2019, prg.ai is launching prg.ai Minor in a pilot run aimed at tech-savvy students already enrolled at Charles University (CUNI) and 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.

What to Do Next

How prg.ai Minor Works

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.

To gain the 'prg.ai Minor degree', you need to:

  • Sign up with us and be accepted.
  • Choose 4 out of 6 offered thematic blocks (CoreML and CoreSYMB are compulsory).
  • Pass at least one course of your choice in each of the 4 blocks.
  • The selected courses must come from 3 out of 4 participating faculties, across the two universities.

Selection Criteria

All the selected courses are of great didactic value, but some have been limited to a dozen, or at most a couple of dozen, students so far. We cannot scale up instantly, as we do not want to overload the courses, so we are starting small and will grow according to student interest.

In the pilot run this year, prg.ai Minor will select only a limited number of students. The selection is not aimed to be competitive, only restrictive. In other words:

  • We filter out applicants where we do not see sufficient background (esp. maths and programming languages) or motivation for the courses of their choice.
  • Other than that, we will adhere to the order of applications.

The sooner you apply, the more likely you are to be accepted.
