The aim of this degree is to allow students face complex challenges in a real-world environment where problem-solving, collaboration and creativity are highly valued skills. Local companies are involved in the study process – they provide the students with the R&D tasks and their experts act as mentors for the students.

Students will get hands-on experience on applying AI-tools in cooperation with the vivid ecosystem of companies in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Robotics located in Pori.

The studies at AI will be divided in:

  • Basic studies 40 ECT (i.e. applied mathematics, natural science, communication, etc.)
  • Professional studies 110 ECT (i.e. AI, ML, data science, etc.)
  • Elective studies 15 ECT
  • Work Placement, internship 30 ECT
  • Thesis 15 ECT

The pedagogical methods are integrated as a mode of higher education outside of the class room. Robotics and AI Academy students are chosen according to their practical learning styles. 15-20 new Academy students are chosen every year.

Academy students carry out all their studies by practical projects with topics coming from the local companies. The companies have significant role, because their needs define the knowledge needs of the students. Students work like the RDI departments of the companies. This will also give the companies possibilities for prolonged recruitment.
Students have different roles in different projects varying from project managers to marketing managers and technology experts. The most used methods in Robotics and AI Academy are Project Learning and Learning by Doing. Teachers role is more like coaching.
