Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education: Strand 2 – Partnership for transformation in higher education


Title: International Masters in Embedded Artificial Intelligence (EmbeddedAI)

Consortium: University of Siegen (Germany), KTH Institute of Technology (Sweden), University of Klagenfurt (Austria), University of Port Harcourt (Nigeria), University of Abuja (Nigeria), Michael Okpara University of Agriculture (Nigeria), Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (Nigeria), Obafemi Awolowo University (Nigeria).


The EmbeddedAI project aims to enhance the skill set for modelling, designing and analysing artificial intelligence on embedded systems for engineers by strengthening the Nigerian HE training and curricula with state-of-the-art European standards and technologies.

The project’s goal is to establish and align study programs for a Master of Science in Embedded Artificial Intelligence to facilitate entrepreneurship opportunities and serve the Nigerian industry. The project aims to strengthen the links between university-enterprise cooperation, entrepreneurship and employability of graduates in Nigeria and encourage the culture of practice-oriented and industry-motivated training in Nigeria’s HE systems that are historically more theoretically oriented.

In order to achieve these goals, EmbeddedAI aims at the following.
