Experiential learning opportunities with artificial intelligence
The Nittany AI Associates program provides Penn State students hands-on experience that enhances their classroom learning by offering opportunities to work on artificial intelligence–related projects. Selected students will work on semester-long projects that involve creating proofs of concept to demonstrate the potential impact of AI in addressing real-world problems.
Going into junior year, only about half of students have internships at this point in computer science. If you do, it gives you an edge in the job market, which I feel like I have. During this experience, I’ve been able to make key connections that will be invaluable when looking for a job post-graduation.
