AIT offers a 5-week-long program in the Summer. Students attending the summer term can earn 6 AIT credits (one 4-credit course on Mobile Software Development and one 2-credit course on Budapest Studies) and will have an average load of 22-24 contact hours per week.
Mobile application development is one of the newest and most exciting areas of information technology. Mobile Software Development is a course that blends theory and practice, ultimately allowing students to develop, design, and implement their own mobile “apps.”
In the Summer Term Mobile Software Development course will meet four times a week (Monday through Thursday), for four hours per day in the morning. Contact hours will be accompanied by laboratory assignments in the afternoon. Hence this 5-week course corresponds to 4 academic credits in most North American colleges and universities using the semester system.
Budapest Studies is a 2-credit course on the past and present of Budapest (from the Roman times till the present), as well as some development dilemmas the city has faced and is facing right now. This course has been specifically designed for students studying computer science and entrepreneurship and who are interested in human studies at an academic level. The course aims to provide insight into the rich heritage of Budapest based on recent academic approaches.
The "Budapest Studies" course has an irregular schedule (since special excursions, museum visits etc are also included) with an average of 8 contact hours per week, hence it corresponds to 2 academic credits in most North American colleges and universities using the semester system.
Students can take Summer courses at AIT in two ways: either independently, for those students wishing to participate in AIT’s partial curriculum during the summer only, or as an extension of the regular Spring Semester in order to receive additional credit. This last option might be especially attractive to students whose home institutions operate on a quarter system, as this way, between the regular Spring Semester and the Summer Term, they can complete sufficient credits for two regular quarters.
The cost of the Summer Term is $3,500 for those only participating in the Summer program, and is $3,000 for regular Spring Semester students.
Application deadline for the Summer Term is March 15.
