FOR LEARNERS

Become a machine learning engineer

Why us

All of our programmes are full-time and in-person. We keep class sizes small, typically less than 20. You will be surrounded by motivated peers and supported by expert practitioners.

You will receive one-on-one sessions with engineers who have worked across BigTech and academia. You will read and understand cutting edge AI papers, implement them in code, and present your solutions to a cohort of engaged and supportive peers.

Course outline

We offer a self-paced preparatory course and two full-time in-person intensives. We also run an 18-month apprenticeship, open to students with an existing employer who is willing to partner with us.
