Students enroll to the ML PhD program through one of the participating units (the College of Computing or the Schools of AE, BME, ECE, ISYE, and Math). Applications can be started here. In the Program Selection section of the application, choose:
Ph.D. in Machine Learning ([home unit name])
Applicants must meet all admissions standards (including requirements on the minimum GPA, minimum GRE/TOEFL scores) of their home unit. After an initial review, the unit’s representative to the ML PhD Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) will submit their candidates to the program; the final admission decision will be made by the committee.
The committee’s decision to admit will be based on (1) prior academic performance of the applicant in a B.S. or M.S. program at a recognized institution, including coursework and independent research projects, (2) prior work experience relevant to ML, (3) the applicant’s statement of purpose, and (4) the letters of support.
