Machine Learning and Data Science

The ECE Department is developing a new Machine Learning & Data Science graduate focus area. Designed for graduate students with diverse undergraduate degrees, the program spans the spectrum from fundamental theory to practical applications. It quickly brings students up to speed with the field’s mathematical and computational foundations, continues with state of the art machine-learning and algorithmic tools that undergird today’s big-data analytics, and offers specialized courses that bridge the field with important branches of science and engineering.

As with all ECE MS majors, the curriculum encompasses 12 courses and typically takes four academic quarters to complete.  Courses will be offered by the department’s renowned faculty and experienced industrial experts starting Fall 2017. Current ECE graduate students interested in data science are encouraged to avail of the new offerings. Subject to university approval, new students will be able to formally enroll in the major starting Fall 2018.
