“Micro Masters” in AI



DSI is represented on a joint Industry-Academia committee planning to establish a micro masters degree in Artificial Intelligence.

For the moment, such a program will not be recognized as an official Council of Higher Education degree, but as a cluster of graduate level courses to be recognized as such by Industry.

The role of IDSI, through its member Research Centers, is to encourage universities to offer places for qualified external students in appropriate masters level courses, and to facilitate in the mutual recognition of those courses by several universities — each university stipulating its own conditions for recognition.

Such recognition will allow students who complete the cluster to enroll as full-time students in regular MSc  programs and get predetermined credit for their “cluster” studies.
