Working professionals now have a new opportunity to engage with professional learning in artificial intelligence with a new pathway provided by Stanford University through a shorter format program that results in a professional certificate.
Stanford graduate programs in artificial intelligence, taught by some of the world’s greatest AI researchers, are in high demand from on-campus and remote learners alike.
Developed by the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD), it operates under Stanford Online and in partnership with Stanford’s Department of Computer Science. The new professional education program offers real peer engagement and mentorship, combined with deep-dive instruction.
The program was originally trialed in 2019, and has since expanded to accommodate several thousand trainees a year.
While less time-intensive than Stanford’s existing graduate program in artificial intelligence, where a single class might take up to 20 hours a week to finish, the new offering is comparatively demanding in terms of intellectual rigor.
To acquire that in-depth training and complete the subject, participants in the professional program have to dedicate between 8 and 14 hours a week for up to 30 weeks.
At the same time, the program supports Stanford’s computer science faculty as they can enhance their awareness of the real-world difficulties that people are expecting to solve with AI by engaging with a worldwide audience of professional education learners.
Stanford Online now gives professional learners a full set of entry points from which to develop their grasp of AI with the advent of its new professional certificate.
