I do not accpet graduate students anymore, you may read student page.

Data Science

If you are professional looking for training in Machine Learning, Continuing Studies Certificate in Machine Learning and Data Science of McGill. If you are a graduate student, you may want to check MTH6312, a course on Statistical Machine Learning. I am writing a textbook on the subject with emphasis on concepts, application, and computation, check teaching page for more details.
Every semester I try to run a one-day hands-on Python Workshop and an R Workshop fovusing on Data Science and Artificial Intelligence at GERAD.

Keep your eye on Data Science program of University of British Columbia which is excellent one-year program in master's level.
