About the Course

Why Attend?

Engineers having knowledge in Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence are in great demand in every sector. Your resume will be sought by small, mid-size and large organizations alike offering much higher salaries than traditional jobs.

The program develops a high level of understanding quickly. This program consists of 5 in-person classes (40 hours, Monday through Friday), covering basics to in-depth understanding on Artificial Neural Networks, Shallow Learning, Back Propogation and Feed Forward Techniques to analyze images, text and structured data. During hands-on sessions, participants will develop a functioning AI application as a final project. This will give them experience solving real AI and Deep Learning problems.

Who Should Attend?

The program allows participants to jump start their career in 1 week through a thorough grinding in Deep Learning and AI core concepts. Accelerated Certificate Course in Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence is ideal for the following:

STEM: Bachelor’s or higher with knowledge in Python or any other programming language. Recent graduates with major in the STEM (Maths, Physics, Statistics, Chemistry, Economics, Industrial or Computer Science Engineering or equivalent) with a basic knowledge of any programming languages like Python, Java, R, C#, etc.

Tech-Professionals: The program is also suitable for professionals who have hands-on technical experience in any programming languages, like Python, R, Java, C#, etc. This course is ideal for professionals looking for transforming their career into Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
