Artificial Intelligence Courses

Dr Anu Sahni from NCI's School of Computing recently hosted a webinar focusing on the area of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, giving participants a taste of what it would be like to study the Higher Diploma in Science in Computing specialising in AI/ML.

For September 2020, this course is offered through Springboard+ and the Human Capital Initiative (HCI), which allows us to offer courses for free or at a reduced cost, to fill skills shortages in Ireland. You can choose whether you wish to study this one-year course fully online or through a mix of online and on-campus classes (when it is safe to do so) with the blended learning option. 

Visit the course pages on the Springboard+ website to apply: 

A student contribution fee of €540 is applicable if you are in employment, while the course is free of charge if you are unemployed. Review the eligibility criteria on the Springboard+ website for further information, and to complete a quick eligibility questionnaire.
