Learn Advanced Tech Skills to Set Yourself Apart

The online Metis Deep Learning Fundamentals Short Immersive Course will help you master key tech concepts that drive AI advances. You’ll learn from elite instructors and build on your professional project portfolio. 

Deep Learning Fundamentals Course Overview


Unit 1

Neural Networks, Embeddings and Convolutional Neural Networks

In unit one we’ll cover the basics—from simple feedforward neural networks to deep learning fundamentals. We’ll also explore embeddings, transfer learning, and convolutional neural networks.

Unit 2

Sequence Modeling

In unit two, we’ll dive deeper into deep learning methods for modeling sequential data. At the end of the course, you’ll complete a final assessment.


This is a great opportunity to show your ability to solve data science problems using deep learning algorithms. You’ll choose a problem related to images, time series, text, or other complicated data formats, and train your models or apply transfer learning techniques.

What's Covered

  • Converting non-tabular data sources into numerical arrays that can be analyzed and processed as neural network inputs
  • Describing the architecture, prediction process, and training methodology of feed-forward neural networks
  • Constructing neural networks in Python, tuning their hyperparameters with rigorous model training and evaluation techniques
  • Describing and building the architecture and prediction process of convolutional neural networks to handle image data inputs in Python
  • Describing and building the architecture and prediction process of recurrent neural networks to handle sequential data inputs in Python
  • Applying transfer learning to improve the quality of both image and text processing neural networks


We recommend you have some data knowledge of the following topics:

  • Python and pandas basics
  • Common visualization tools used to explore, analyze, and visualize datasets
  • Machine learning math fundamentals including calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics
  • Basic relational databases and SQL syntax, as well as how to write simple queries to extract information from relational databases
  • Major supervised machine learning topics including regression models, classification models, and model evaluation
  • Web scraping or gathering data through programming interfaces (APIs) is not required but helpful

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are there prerequisites for the Deep Learning Fundamentals course?

    This short immersive course is advanced, so while anyone can enroll, we strongly suggest all incoming students demonstrate the following:

    • - Comfort with the math fundamentals of machine learning including statistics, calculus, linear algebra, and probability.
    • - Proficiency in general pandas, Python, and basic visualization libraries; the ability to comfortably use these tools to analyze, explore, and visualize tabular datasets.
    • - Theoretical knowledge of, as well as practical experience in, major supervised machine learning topics including classification models, regression models, and model evaluation.
    • - Comfort with web scraping or obtaining data through application programming interfaces (APIs). This is a definite plus for students who wish to move through the course with a wider range of possible projects. However, these skills are not necessary for course success.
    • - All students need an active Github account, which they can handle prior to the course start. It’s free and easy to do so. 
  • How should I go about enrolling in this course?

    To enroll in the Deep Learning Fundamentals course, all you have to do is click here. Be sure to do so before 8pm ET on the Friday before the course start date. That deadline allows us to send students all necessary materials and information before day one so they can start the course on the right foot.

  • What payment options are available for this course? How much does the course cost?

    Tuition for the Deep Learning Fundamentals course is $2,500. Students can pay for the course in full or consider one of our financing options. We partner with Ascent to offer monthly repayment options for our students. Learn more by visiting Ascent.

  • What is the time commitment for the Deep Learning Fundamentals course?

    Students in the Online Flex Deep Learning Fundamentals course format are required to complete 15-to-20 hours a week for four weeks. They will watch on-demand lectures and engage with instructors and teaching assistants live online during 1:1 sessions weekly.

  • Is Metis Career Support included with this course?

    Career support is not included as part of our short immersive courses.
