Is the MS EAI right for me?

  • Are you an engineer who:
    • has solid math and programming skills?
    • is interested in integrating new technologies into your designs?
    • wants to apply your engineering skills to opportunities in Africa?
    • wants to learn about AI and machine learning and is willing to invest in a rigorous two-year program to learn more?
  • If you said yes to all of these, then MS EAI is for you!
What are units?

CMU uses units instead of credits to indicate the average number of hours required per week for a full-semester course. A nine unit class requires nine hours of work a week on the course.
