Email spam filters and autocorrect. Siri, Alexa and Cortana. Self-driving cars. Things that once seemed like science fiction are now part of our daily lives, thanks to machine learning. Every day, machine learning is making our systems and devices smarter — and changing the way we live in profound ways.

UW ECE will launch the new Certificate in Machine Learning and Deep Learning: Application Frontiers this upcoming autumn quarter —  an evening, graduate-level program for students wanting to enhance their skills and knowledge in these areas. The three-course certificate program explores how machine learning is reshaping the world, and what tools are needed to help make that happen. 

The program is designed for those with a programming background who are interested in pursuing a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering, those with engineering or computer science degrees who are looking to add to their skill sets, and professionals from other backgrounds seeking to enter the machine learning field.

Students will learn how to implement and evaluate learning algorithms for a broad range of applications and work with state-of-the-art Python libraries for machine learning such as NumPy and PyTorch. Students will choose the path of study that most interests them by selecting classes offered through the Department’s Professional Master’s Program.

Learn more about the program, curriculum and instructors by attending an upcoming online information session on Wednesday, July 28, 2021 at 12 p.m. PDT. RSVP
