The aim of this paper is to describe the process of how to develop course content for a new challenging and emerging ICT technology in a higher education organization. The structure of the developed data analytics (DA) and Artificial Intelligence curriculum (AI) as well as the contents of the courses will be presented precisely. In spring 2017, the Institute of Information Technology at JAMK University of Applied Sciences started to develop its competence in DA and AI. The lack of good and well-organized university level education material and knowledge of the previously mentioned technology were the major challenges during the development process. Basic and very high-level theoretical courses from DA and AI can be found easily; however, hands-on type implementation courses were missing.
