The Faculty of Science of the University of South Bohemia has received accreditation for a unique study program in the South Bohemian region, "Artificial intelligence and Data Science" (MAID).
It is a cross-border joint degree program taught in English, whose graduates receive two degrees (Mgr. (CZ) and M.Sc. (DE)). This program was developed in close cooperation between the University of South Bohemia (USB) and the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT).
The study program focuses on the phenomenon of artificial intelligence in conjunction with data analysis. What makes it unique is its orientation towards the applied sector, not only by completing a compulsory internship, but also by taking a semester-long AI.Lab course, where students verify the application of AI methods in practice.
The first winter semester is always taught from October in České Budějovice, the second summer semester from March in Deggendorf and the other two semesters are chosen by the student according to his/her priorities. It is also possible to start studies in the summer semester in Germany.
The MAID is a professionally oriented study program that was created in cooperation with the most important companies in the region, but also with the support of the South Bohemian Chamber of Commerce (JHK). The creation of the study program was supported by the cross-border cooperation program between the Free State of Bavaria and the Czech Republic, the EUS OBJECTIVE 2014-2020.
