Manufacturing AI

Earn your Graduate Micro-Credential in Manufacturing AI

For manufacturers, artificial intelligence (AI) can be a game changer, offering a competitive advantage by using machine learning (ML) solutions and deep learning neural networks to optimize manufacturing processes with improved data analysis and decision-making. Students in the Graduate Micro-Credential in Manufacturing AI will gain foundational knowledge of Smart Manufacturing (SM) and AI concepts necessary to build any SM system, as well as learn data handling and simulation techniques used in the manufacturing industry.

Our graduate-level micro-credentials are practical and industry-relevant, and offer a way to gain expertise quickly in an ever-changing landscape and realize a competitive edge.

In just two classes, you will earn a micro-credential and digital badge to bolster your resume and online profile. Badges are a convenient way to digitally showcase and share expertise and help differentiate yourself in the market. 

Students have the option to use coursework from the micro-credential to continue in a graduate certificate or master’s degree program offered by Graduate Programs in Software.
