Honours Programma Bachelor AI
The Honours Programme of the Bachelor's in Artificial Intelligence is
an excellence programme intended for highly talented and motivated students who want to go a
bit further with their studies.
Those who join the Programme have the opportunity to widen their
training by following interdisciplinary courses outside the field of
AI and to go deeper into their own discipline by participating in AI
projects that go beyond the standard Bachelor's curriculum.
The Honours Programme involves taking a minimum of 30 EC extra over
the 3-year Bachelor's period. These 30 EC are achieved by taking
two extra courses (12 EC) in semesters 2 and 4,
participating in two research projects (12 EC) in semesters 3 and 5, and
extending the Bachelor's thesis project (by 6 EC) in semester 6.
Those students who follow the programme
and complete all courses and projects (both regular and honours) in three years with an average grade of at least 7, receive an Honours diploma together with their Bachelor's
For information on interdisciplinary honours courses, consult the
website of the
of Interdisciplinary Studies.
Honours research projects offer you the opportunity to get involved in
current AI-related research being carried out at the faculty of
science. Honours students work in small groups and are supervised by
expert researchers. New project topics are proposed every year. They
are made available at the end of August. Scroll
