Qualification

People who successfully complete the program and meet the necessary academic requirements will obtain the University Microcredential in Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Territories from the University of Valencia.

The final grade will depend on the evaluation made of:

  • One job per module (4 modules, 50%).
  • A final project (50%).

Attendance to the synchronous classes will not be mandatory. These classes will be recorded and published, so that any student will be able to access the content whenever he/she wants, in order to adapt to the schedule that best suits him/her.

The Specialization Course in Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Territories offers you the maximum flexibility to make it compatible with your professional and personal responsibilities.

The program's blended learning methodology combines synchronous videoconference sessions, which you can follow from anywhere in the world, with the autonomous development of online content that you will work on individually. The program ends with the development of a final group project.
