Every day, the amount of data (from audio to video, and from electronic health records to browsing interests and shopping preferences) continues to increase, and there is a corresponding explosion of demand from industry for engineers who are trained to extract relevant information from such data so that it can be used to improve modern technology and society. This increased demand for qualified data scientists cannot be met with the current pool of qualified engineers. To meet this need, the Master of Science in  Electrical and Computer Engineering – Machine Learning and Data Science provides students with focused, rigorous training in the theory, methods, and applications of data science, machine learning and signal, and information processing.

International Students: This program is eligible for the OPT STEM extension.
