In response to demand from its students, initiatives within faculty research, and increasing needs from industry, Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering is creating new courses and reimagining others to strengthen its artificial intelligence and machine learning education.

Six undergraduate courses launch this spring semester, after another six began this past fall (two courses from fall are repeated this spring). They span six of the College’s eight schools. Topics range from AI in smart cities to machine learning fundamentals to online decision making as the College expands its initiatives to innovate education.

“AI and machine learning have been around since the 1950s, but only recently has the computational power existed — and been cheap enough — for the average company to make it a part of its business,” said Mitchell Walker, who led the effort on behalf of the College as associate dean for academic affairs. “These companies need our graduates to understand how the technology works and educate their existing workforce.”
