By - Dec 13th, 2021 09:30 am

In response to the booming demand for workers skilled in artificial intelligence and machine learning, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s College of Engineering & Applied Science worked with Milwaukee-area industry leaders to create a new graduate certificate.

The Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning graduate certificate is a 15-credit curriculum geared for working professionals. It can be completed in one year and is offered in-person, online or a combination.

“Many, if not all, sectors of the economy now need workers with relatively deep knowledge and advanced skills in artificial intelligence and machine learning,” said Susan McRoy, professor and chair of UWM’s Department of Computer Science. The global artificial intelligence market was estimated at $62 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 40% from 2021 to 2028, according to Grand View Research.

The certificate is open to those with undergraduate degrees that require academic preparation in math and programming, including science, engineering, computer science, economics and finance. Applicants with other degrees will be considered via holistic assessment of their academic record and professional experience.

It can be completed online for $14,000 or less, or can be taken in person, where regular in-state/out-of-state tuition rates apply.
