  • Additional important information on restriction course registration courses MSc AI

    Due to the large number of students who applied for admission to the master programme AI this year, the courses of the master programme AI face some capacity problems. Therefore, the programme was forced to place some restrictions on several courses. The programme and the Graduate School of Informatics regret having to enforce these restrictions on courses, but lacks the facilities to admit all students from other programmes.

    The courses from the master programme Artificial Intelligence are available to all students for registration, but please note that due to the limited capacity of the courses students of the master programme Artificial Intelligence have priority.
