The emergence of advanced AI-driven tools has led to a wide range of opportunities and transformations in software engineering practices and education. Recognizing this potential, JetBrains and Delft University of Technology have collaborated to establish the AI for Software Engineering Lab (AI4SE). Together, we are committed to conducting cutting-edge research on the impact and utilization of AI methodologies in software engineering. Our areas of focus include diverse facets of the domain, such as software development, testing, and programming education.

Research Projects

The core of AI4SE consists of five research tracks in which researchers and five PhD students (one for each track) work together on a range of relevant topics. The lab will be run by a joint team of researchers at JetBrains and TU Delft, including Prof. Dr. Arie van Deursen and Dr. Maliheh Izadi from TU Delft, as well as Dr. Vladimir Kovalenko and Dr. Pouria Derakhshanfar from JetBrains.
