Artificial intelligence (AI) these days is becoming a more popular choice among students because of its large scope in different fields of life and career. The chapter is based on how the vocational courses of AI have its effect on the students' self-concept. The two groups of students have been taken for the study: one group having vocational trade as AI and basics (150 students) and another group having non-vocational subjects (150). The chapter has two goals: to compare level of self-concept of students with AI-based vocational trade subject and students without any vocational courses and to analyze gender difference among students in relation to self-concept. The samples were selected by simple random sampling. T-test analysis showed that the two groups had significant difference between their levels of self-concept. The students with AI-based vocational subject have a higher self-concept than that of students of non-vocational subjects.

2. The Development Of Self-Concept

The sense of self grows slowly. It begins in infancy, with Self Awareness, when a child recognizes itself; the first moment of self-recognition comes. The next step is Self -Definition. This comes when the child identifies the characteristics it considers important to describe it. A little girl can think herself in terms of externals as her pony tailed hair, her neat house, and her activities in school. Until about age 6 or 7 the child begins to define in psychological terms. He/She now develops a concept of who he/she (the real self) and also of who he/she would like to be (the ideal self). By the time he/she achieves self-understanding (Hurlock, 1978).
