What does “Digital Transformation” mean?

The digital transformation is the turbo for companies. It is more than just an IT upgrade – we are talking of a revolution in the business world where technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and big data are used in a targeted manner. With the help of the digital transformation, organisations are modernised so that their processes become more efficient, and their products and services are further improved.

But this is not only about technology: Trained specialists/experts serve as interfaces and make sure that all divisions are kept on course.

Why do companies need AI experts?

The digital transformation is in full swing, and AI is the star of the show. More and more companies rely on smart, AI-driven tools and expand their digital infrastructure in order to optimise their business models or rebuild them entirely.

But this is not as easily achieved as it may sound: It takes professionally trained experts to accompany these processes. Only they have the necessary know-how to advance innovation and implement it in a meaningful way. In other words, experts like YOU are in great demand!

Are there any possibilities for specialisation?

It is made up of five main subject areas:

  1. Advanced Machine Learning
  2. AI Architecture
  3. AI & Society
  4. Digital Business Transformation
  5. Scientific Working

In addition, you have the option to personalise your curriculum by choosing electives (in the 2nd and 3rd semesters).

What career paths are open to me after I graduate?

More and more lines of industry are forced to take data-based decisions. As a graduate of this study programme, you have the necessary skills for using AI to implement processes tailored to individual companies, thus achieving a considerable competitive advantage for your business.
