▸ AI is no longer a dream in science fiction movies, it is quietly changing the world. But don’t worry, that also means endless opportunities await. From machine learning to automation, AI technology is constantly evolving, and international students can find their own stage in various industries. In the AI ​​era, it is crucial to choose a major that suits you . Don't blindly pursue popular majors. Interest and passion are your most powerful engines. No matter what major you choose, you will have the opportunity to combine it with AI technology to create new opportunities.

▸ In the AI ​​era, learning never ends. Developing the habit of lifelong learning is crucial . International students can continuously improve their abilities and skills by participating in online courses, seminars, etc., and at the same time, actively participate in practical projects to apply theoretical knowledge into practice.

▸ In the context of globalization, the ability to communicate and cooperate across cultures has become increasingly important. Interact with partners from all over the world, broaden your horizons, integrate the wisdom of different cultures, and create a diverse future together!

▸ With the development of AI technology, ethical and moral issues have become increasingly prominent. International students should actively participate in relevant discussions and research. Understanding the ethical principles of AI will help them better meet future challenges.
