The Master in Artificial Intelligence for Public Services (AI4Gov) is a new higher education programme funded by the European Union, and developed by four leading European universities in the fields of digital, technology, and engineering science.  

Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), Politecnico di Milano (Italy), Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany) and the Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech), based in Estonia's capital are the four higher education institutions behind the educational offer. The programme is part of a wider initiative, in which university networks, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and top researchers have joined forces to offer new high-quality specialised Master programmes and courses in Artificial Intelligence (AI). The initiative is funded through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Telecom programme and will bring advanced digital skills closer to non-technical people and other professionals, making a contribution to the target of 20 million information and communication technology (ICT) professionals by 2030, put forward in the European Commission's Digital Decade.

Aims and objectives  

The goal of the AI4Gov Master is to prepare future digital transformation leaders for the increased development and uptake of AI in the public sector. They will learn how to plan, design and use AI in the delivery of public services, so as to improve the provision, effectiveness and value of these public services as well as public sector’s capacity by means of an adequate management, knowledge and development of AI-related projects and services. 

Learning outcomes  

The overall expected outcome culminates in the education of functional specialists in the application of AI to public services. A functional specialist in AI and public services will not only understand the foundations and state of the art of AI technologies, but also the full cycle for the development and delivery of public services that make use of AI technologies, including design, development, delivery and evaluation. 

Upon successful completion of this Master, graduates will be awarded a Joint Degree on Artificial Intelligence for Public Services, awarded by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Politecnico di Milano. 

More information and requirements 

The Master programme targets professionals, interested in upskilling, coming from any discipline (not only Computer Science), who want to improve their knowledge of AI and its link to public administration and become functional specialists in the area. In addition, the programme also aims to engage business executives and employees from the public sector (such as civil servants, contractors, etc) so that they are equipped with the practical knowledge on how to implement, manage and govern AI-based services. Students with a degree in ICT are also invited to apply. The second edition of the Master, which will start in September 2022, will be a part-time course, contrarily to the first edition which was full time.

Registrations for the second edition of the Master are open until 30 June 2022. Visit the link for more information on how to apply.
