Autonomous vehicles, healthcare robots, intelligent household appliances, autonomous irrigation and fertilizer systems, smart digital assistants: Artificial Intelligence is finding its way into our everyday lives. Be at the forefront to help shape the great digital revolution. Explore the Artificial Intelligence degree offered by Johannes Kepler University Linz!


Experts say that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be more groundbreaking than electricity. Those who are one step ahead can play a key role in contributing to the way our future lives will be shaped. The new Bachelor's degree program in Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides you with an ideal start to this mission. You control how and what machines learn. You develop the learning algorithms and methods needed for making intelligent decisions.

Why is Johannes Kepler University Linz the perfect place for this? Because Linz is a globally recognized hot-spot in AI research. Because this is among the first AI degree programs in Europe. Because the program is in English and internationally oriented. But above all: Because you don't just want to experience the future, you want to actively create it.

What Makes This Program Special

  • The Bachelor's degree program in Artificial Intelligence at the JKU makes you unique: It is among one of the first AI degree programs in Europe. There is no comparable degree program in Austria.
  • Human or machine? Clearly both. At the JKU, you will learn how Artificial Intelligence can serve society - but also where the dangers lie.
  • Your base-knowledge education in mathematics and computer science is balanced, but you will also become an expert in specific AI fields, including machine learning, knowledge representation, and language processing.

Career Prospects

Graduates of the Bachelor's degree program possess a broad range of high-level skills and expertise and are highly sought after in business and industry:

  • Information Technology: Austria currently lacks over 10,000 IT specialists, particularly AI experts.
  • Manufacturing and Supply Chains: As a specialist and manager, you can develop AI systems to control the flow of goods. As an analyst you can use AI methods to extract corresponding relationships and new information from available data: Where are the weak links in the supply chain? Which parts can be better optimized and how?
  • Medicine and Healthcare: Use AI methods to improve diagnostic processes
  • Transportation: Use AI methods to help design and develop autonomous vehicles
