Study Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence at U of T Engineering
Our Master of Engineering students can choose from a wide range of technical emphases, including Robotics & Mechatronics and Analytics. Within the Engineering Science program, undergraduates can major in Robotics or Machine Intelligence — the first program of its kind in Canada to specialize in the study, development and application of algorithms that help systems learn from data. Undergraduates in our core engineering disciplines can pursue complementary studies in Robotics & Mechatronics through multidisciplinary minors.
From ChatGPT to DALL-E, deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms are being applied to an ever-growing range of fields. A new study from U of T Engineering researchers, published in Nature Communications, suggests that one of the fundamental assumptions of deep learning models — that they require enormous amounts of training data — may not be as solid as once thought.
Professor Jason Hattrick-Simpers (MSE) and his team are focused on the design of next-generation materials, from catalysts that convert captured carbon into fuels to non-stick surfaces that keep airplane wings ice-free.
One of the challenges in the field is the enormous potential search space
