The AI and Machine Learning two-year graduate certificate program is specially designed for international students that have diverse software development backgrounds.
With a focus on deep learning neural networks, students will discover how to design and deploy cutting-edge technologies such as convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks and generative adversarial networks in areas such as healthcare, bioscience, manufacturing, financial services and supply chain sectors. Students will also work with mainstream technologies such as Google's TensorFlow to train various machine learning models using big data and state-of-the-art hardware.
Not only will students gain extensive technical knowledge of AI and Machine Learning, but they will also learn and apply skills in project management, communication and teamwork through hands-on, industry-based research projects and a comprehensive in-class capstone project.
In their final semester, students will complete a paid, co-operative work term with an industry partner.
