What is a Artificial Intelligence Software Developer?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is training a computer to simulate human intelligence.
A common example of AI that you may have already interacted with is a chatbot; they typically can be found on the front pages of websites that people visit every day.
Did you know?
There are more artificial intelligence jobs than skilled professionals to fill them, and the AI world has shown no signs of slowing down, so the demand is very high.
Artificial Intelligent offers a promising future, studying this qualification will enable students to teach the machine to solve problems the way a human would using programming. Students learn to create, test and deploy code, allowing students to craft technologies that are integrated into how humans would normally act. Gain knowledge of the field of artificial intelligence, its definition and potential applications, as well as the value of AI to society and business, through this qualification.
- NQF Level 4 qualification.
Certification and Examination
On successful completion of the programme, the student will receive a statement of result from Berea College of Technology and upon meeting the EISA requirements, receive an Occupational Certificate: Artificial Intelligence Software Developer from the QCTO.
EISA is a single, national assessment which leads to competent learners being awarded Occupational Certificates. It is an integral and critical component of QCTO’s quality assurance system, as it ensures that the assessment of occupational qualifications, part-qualifications and trades is standardised, consistent and credible. Qualifying for External Assessment: To qualify for an external assessment, learners must provide proof of completion of all required knowledge and practical modules by means of statements of results and a record of completed work experience.
Duration and Work-Integrated Learning
2 YEARS FULL TIME
- Prescribed textbook lists will be provided by the academic department at your campus. Students will receive electronic versions of the study guides for this programme. Study material is also available online on the learner management system, Moodle.
Enquire at the Berea College of Technology campus for a current programme pricelist.
Students must make provision for additional items such as textbooks, stationery, supplementary examinations, research costs and printing of study guides etc.
