First-year students in the Master's study programme will receive new Raspberry Pi microcomputers from FIT
FIT will give out over two hundred small single-board Raspberry Pi 4 computers with small accessories to first-year FIT students enrolled in the Information Technology and Artificial Intelligence Master's study programme. "Students can use them in a number of courses and, in addition, in the current situation they can work on various school projects from home," says Pavel Zemčík, Dean of the Faculty of Information Technology. However, the Raspberry Pi has a much wider use - students can, for example, connect small electronic devices to it, use it to play multimedia content, run office programs, browse the web or use it to automate their home. "We hope that with this new initiative, we will be able to pass on a positive attitude towards hardware and, in particular, an impulse that might kickstart other interesting projects," adds Pavel Zemčík. Starting from 1 October, all new first-year students of the Master's study programme can collect the microcomputers at the Student Services Department during office hours.
