Machine Learning Emphasis
There is an increasing need in industry and academic research for students to graduate with an understanding of theory and practical skills related to data science and machine learning. Knowledge and experience in machine learning requires basic data science skills, knowledge of algorithms used for machine learning, as well as practical experience in common application areas. This emphasis gives the students a clear path of the courses that they can take to gain that important knowledge and hone those critical skills. Graduates from this emphasis can apply to entry level machine learning engineer positions.
The Machine Learning emphasis is effective Fall 2020. Contact Casey Kennington for additional details at (208) 426-5731 or email@example.com
