Computer Science - Artificial Intelligence for Managers
The course is fully online, over two semesters. We use asynchronous delivery to suit business leaders' schedules, through videos, readings, exercises, discussion boards, group work, and more, with optional synchronous video sessions. We emphasise continuous assessment. Students will deliver multiple assessment items over the year, with limited use of exams. Students will customise projects to opportunities in their own companies.
Minimum Entry Requirements
Strong Level-8 undergraduate degree, not necessarily in computer science. (Work experience may be considered as an alternative.) Must be working in industry in Ireland at an appropriate level (management or transitioning to management).
WHEN TO APPLY: Please contact Dr Patrick Mannion and/or ITAG Skillnet for application information.
1 year, part-time.
Post Course Info
The field of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to grow very quickly, as techniques which have been proposed over decades are finally being shown to work. Milestones and grand challenges are being achieved. There is no prospect of AI growth slowing in the coming decades. Business leaders need to know how to strategise, envision projects, and hire and manage teams, without needing to become programmers.
