Virtual Reality headset

Ideal for working professionals or students who want to “stack” it with another graduate certificate to earn a master’s degree.

The global artificial intelligence market was estimated at $62.35 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 40.2% from 2021 to 2028.* Many, if not all, sectors of the economy now need workers with relatively deep knowledge and advanced skills in artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Innovators, including Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, have chosen UWM for graduate studies in Computer Science. Industry advisory feedback means our coursework is relevant to future demands. This 15-credit certificate is available in-person, online, or a combination of both.
