The professional M.Sc. in machine learning is a program offered at University of Montreal that starts with 6 graduate level classes. This is followed by a 6 months internship in industry or in an academic laboratory.

Students are supervised by a professor and a staff member from the MILA R&D team, who provide daily guidance and linkage with industrial partners.

The goal of this program is to offer internship opportunities in Montreal where the knowledge of French is a strong asset. Some internship opportunities might require the applicant to speak in French. You can also view the Internship procedure and Internship documents.
