Emphasis is on depth of understanding rather than on the quantity of material. The academic program is based on a philosophy of small and intimate classes, close collaboration of students and faculty, and hands-on work through group projects.
AIT allows computer science students wishing to study abroad to do so without falling behind in their major-specific requirements.
