Program description:
The Faculty of Informatics of the University of Debrecen offers a 1-year (2 semesters) advanced training course in Artificial Intelligence (AI Expert) in English in a hybrid format. The aim of the course is to provide high-level, state-of-the-art training in artificial intelligence for those who already have a basic IT knowledge. The training will be useful for the younger generation of newcomers to the profession as well as for those who have not yet had the opportunity to learn about these tools in the last decades during their studies. Our aim is to train professionals who can develop state-of-the-art applications using artificial intelligence, both offline and in the cloud, using the latest technological processes. The preparation and launch of the training has been supported by a number of industrial partners, including Bosch, EPAM, General Electric, Microsoft, NI, NVIDIA. To ensure the global nature and measurability of the training, participants can optionally obtain industry certifications, notably NVIDIA (the current list can be found here: Nvidia Deep Learning Institute – Debreceni Egyetem) and Microsoft (e.g. Azure Fundamentals, Azure AI Fundamentals, Azure AI Solution, Azure AI Engineer Associate). The list of certificates available at the Faculty is constantly expanding, following international trends and technological developments.

Entrance exam description:
The professional evaluation of the educational materials (degree, transcripts, results) is the task of the relevant Faculty. This evaluation is followed by a Skype interview with one of the professors of the Faculty, which aims to check the applicant’s level of motivation, language skills and professional knowledge. (In case of a missing certificate about the English language proficiency we conduct a Skype interview in order to check the applicant’s English language skills.)

Career opportunities

The courses and their contents have also been designed to overlap as much as possible with the industry certifications. The preparatory courses integrated into the training will thus enable students to obtain international industry certificates in a supervised examination environment at the international examination center of the Faculty of Informatics, but also optionally at other locations, and will allow graduates to add further certificates to their professional portfolio in addition to the certificate of completion of the specialized training.
