The Master on Artificial Intelligence is taught in a building for the exclusive use of CIIA-UV, located in Sebastián Camacho No. 5, Xalapa, Ver. In this building, the master’s students have the following infrastructure:


  • Classroom: Capacity for 25 students, which has adequate lighting for the type of activity that takes place in it, a white board, an electronic blackboard, a video projector, an overhead projector and internet connection. This space allows to meet the teaching needs for two generations of students simultaneously.
  • Auditorium: Capacity for 50 people, it has a professional high resolution video projector, projection screen, white board, 21 ”television and VHS video recorder. This space is generally used for the presentation of degree exams, research seminars, conferences or the exhibition of audio visual material.
  • Library: An important space for the development of the master’s students’ work, which has a reading area (indoor) with capacity for 20 people as well as a living room (outdoor) for 5 people and a white board. The collection in Artificial Intelligence consists of 822 titles and 80 theses, additionally having access to the central university library, which offers the university search system (unicorn), which allows consulting both information on the collections housed in the 59 libraries located in the five regions of the university. There are electronic subscriptions to magazines and digital book collections
