Machine Learning Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering

This certificate program aims at developing skills and understanding for the development of new technologies that take advantage of Machine Learning. Students will first be introduced to the foundational mathematics of Machine Learning and the programming languages for the implementation of these mathematical concepts. Students will then further advance their understanding and programming skills for supervised machine learning. The last course will cover deep learning and the development of a final product in which all programming skills of previous courses will be applied

Upon completion of the certificate program, the student may formally apply and enroll in the Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) in Electrical Engineering program, and all courses completed toward the certificate will be applied toward the M.S.E. degree.
