Course Descriptions

The Computer Science curriculum prepares students for careers in all areas of the computer industry as well as for graduate studies in computer science and computer related fields. Students have also found a computer science major to be excellent preparation for careers in law, medicine, business administration, industrial engineering, biomedical engineering, and other technical and non-technical fields.

CSSE 286 - Introduction to Machine Learning

An introduction to machine learning (ML) systems, with a focus especially on Artificial Intelligence-based systems, versus statistical ones. The course is designed to be useful to students with a basic knowledge of programming and software systems, whether or not they are computer science majors. During the course, students try different machine learning algorithms on data from problems in a domain of interest to them, comparing results with that of other students taking the class, as well as comparing the outcomes of the different algorithms on their own data. A goal of the course is learning how to gain real predictive value from “big data.”
