What was your motivation for enrolling in this course/program?
I have been working on AI/ML-related projects for a year now and have learned a lot on my own thanks to online platforms, colleagues, and everyday experience. Many of these courses and information regarding these topics come from academia or they are about specific applications, but there is minimal information regarding the implementation of AI in manufacturing. Therefore, in seeking to improve my knowledge about the topic I started to look for courses and I came across the one offered by TU Delft.
How did/will this course impact your career or life?
The most valuable thing about the course was being able to share with other students working in different areas and learn from each of them.
The study material is understandable for all audiences and is an introduction to the area of AI. I really liked the challenges that we had each week where we had to propose a project with the new knowledge we’d acquired. Receiving feedback from classmates and the teacher helped me a lot in my process.
How was your experience of learning online?
My experience with online learning was excellent, the course was well structured and the teacher responded quickly to questions, comments and suggestions. The forums and activities helped me to strengthen my knowledge of the subject.
The most challenging thing is to find the time to complete the activities on time, due to work and other commitments, but with good organization, everything can be fitted in. The discussion space with the teacher and students was crucial, I could learn from their experiences and they could learn from me as well.
What advice would you give someone who is thinking of taking a similar course?
Do not hesitate to take a course from TU Delft, it is a great platform with very good teachers. It is really worth it.
