Join us at OTH Amberg-Weiden, where this state-of-the-art degree program is offered across all faculties at the Amberg location. Develop machine learning methods from huge amounts of data and solve complex challenges with artificial intelligence. Program industrial robots and experiment with the "AI" of computer games. Become an expert in visual and linguistic intelligence and develop ubiquitous, mobile applications for the "smart home" in the "smart city".

Career opportunities

Artificial intelligence is a highly topical and at the same time forward-looking megatrend, which is already as old as computer science, but which will decisively shape our future, especially due to the progress in "Deep Learning". Worldwide, but also in our region, AI experts are sought after in almost all areas of life, application and industry.

Study models

The bachelor's degree program in Artificial Intelligence can be completed as a full-time program. Your studies include six theoretical semesters and one practical semester in which you gain insights into later professional life and can make valuable contacts for your career at an early stage. After a common basic study of the techniques of artificial intelligence, programming, computer science, as well as mathematics, you can choose between three different AI specializations:

  • Data Analytics & Computer Vision
  • Smart Energy & Smart Home, or
  • Smart Robotics & Smart Media

The lectures are supplemented and deepened by internships, project work and social group learning units. After successful completion, you will receive the title Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.).


Study start

It is currently only possible to start the Artificial Intelligence (AI) course in the winter semester. An additional start for the summer semester is currently being planned.

Application dates

You can apply online for the program from May 1 to July 15 of each year. In exceptional cases, we extend the application deadlines for individual degree programs. You can find out whether you can still apply for this degree program in the applicant portal.
