Students learn how to apply their knowledge about the nature and different aspects of AI solutions to a related topic and are able to come up with possible problem-solving strategies to a practical problem. Students further learn to recognize and perform logical analyses of complex problems in academic or commercial settings and to discuss them in their specific contexts. They learn and demonstrate how to function in different organizational settings in an international (working) environment.
At the end of the Research Labs/Internship, students are able to apply their knowledge in a practical context, i.e. they learn how to contribute to organizing for and dealing with real questions and issues from the perspective of AI research.
More specifically, students are able to:
- Identify relevant academic papers, select relevant data, and connect relevant theoretical concepts to the practical assignment.
- Select academic knowledge attained in the courses of the CSAI program and use this knowledge in the assignment.
- Choose an appropriate research and data collection method and apply them to the practical assignment.
- Connect the possible implications of outcomes of the research to an advice for the research team or an organization or a broader audience dealing with the problem.
- Perform individual activities within a research team or a company in accordance with the internship organization and function as a young professional.
- Write a clear report that has a logical structure.
- Identify which competences and skills he/she has developed during the internship and reflect critically on these skills and competences. Skills and competences which are to be developed and improved by the Research Labs/Internship have to be described in the initial plan. The student explicitly discusses his/her progress with regard to the academic and professional skills that belong to the core skills and learning goals of CSAI.
The specific content is dependent on the specific individual plan of each student. The Research Labs/Internship can be replaced by minor courses. An internship must encompass at least 6 ECTS. For further information see syllabus on Blackboard.
