Graduate Certificate in Neural Engineering-Signals, Systems and Machine Learning
The Graduate Certificate in Neural Engineering–Signals, Systems and Machine Learning will enable the student to gain both fundamental and applied understanding of brain signals and systems, and machine learning schemes in this rapidly growing component of neural big-data research. The program includes the study of basic concepts related to modeling the nonlinear electrical circuits in the brain which use concepts from signal processing, systems modeling and control disciplines. The students will gain expertise in understanding the fundamentals of signals, systems and machine learning tools for "reverse engineering the brain", and also for the design of neural prostheses, and brain machine interfaces.
Students will need to complete 12 credit hours to earn the certificate.
