Executive Education Short Online Courses

Course 1 -- Applied Machine Learning

Machine Learning has become an entrenched part of everyday life. The books we buy, the movies we watch, the sports we follow, the driving directions we get are driven by Machine Learning algorithms. It is one of the most exciting fields of computing today. And Machine Learning practitioners are in high demand, with a shortfall of 250,000 data scientists forecast.

At Columbia Engineering, we are fascinated by the possibilities of Machine Learning. We have created the Applied Machine Learning course, in partnership with EMERITUS, to help students across the world apply Machine Learning to improve every aspect of human life.

Going beyond the theory, our approach invites participants into a conversation, where learning is facilitated by live subject matter experts and enriched by practitioners in the field of machine learning.

Course 2 -- Applied Data Science

Data is the lifeblood of an organization. Competency in programming and a basic understanding of statistics are an essential skill for successfully extracting information and knowledge from data. The goal of this course is to introduce learners to the basics of programming in Python, to introduce you to fundamental concepts in statistics and to give a working knowledge of how to use programs to deal with data. We will then focus on using Python on the entire data analysis process from data acquisition to machine learning with big data and small data. This is an intensive hands-on course that will equip and reward learners with proficiency in data analysis skills. Undergraduate understanding of basic statistics is required for this course.
