Improving Existing B.Sc. Programs in Jordan and Lebanon by Implementing or Including AI and Robotics Courses


University of Granada


The goal of work package six is to improve existing bachelor programs in Jordan and Lebanon by implementing or including AI and robotics courses into existing curricula. The work is based on the results of
the surveys conducted in WP1. The main aim of this WP is to develop syllabi and content for added and/or modified courses while taking into consideration the work conducted in WP2. All syllabi are designed and reviewed based on feedback from all involved partners.
