AIST is designed to meet today's tremendous demand of well-trained talents in AI and related specializations. There is now a manpower shortages of AI specialists in both local and global employment markets. According to the Innovation and Technology Bureau, the SAR Government's policies in innovation and technology such as re-industrialisation, the expansion of the Science Park in Tseung Kwon O Industrial Estate, and the establishment of HK-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park in Lok Ma Chau Loop, are expected to create 50,000 jobs for people with knowledge and skills in high-end technologies. For this reason, CUHK aims to train talented AI engineers/scientists for the following industries: biomedical engineering/science, information and computing technologies, manufacturing and robotic, as well as intelligence multimedia processing for various Internet companies.
We are arranging internship opportunities, both on campus working with professors on advanced topics related to AIST and with industry outside of campus, would be offered to students. More detailed would be announced throughout the semester when internship programmes are available, while students may also contact the department for opportunities.
