Core Courses

Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

Artificial Neural Networks are programs that write themselves when given an objective, some training data, and abundant computing power. Recently, these programs have brought about a wide array of impressive innovations, such as self-driving cars, face recognition, and human-like speech generators. This course offers you an introduction to Deep Artificial Neural Networks (i.e. “Deep Learning”). With focus on both theory and practice, we cover models for various applications, how they are trained and tested, and how they can be deployed in real-world applications.


Game Development: Programming and Practice + Lab
Fall/Spring, 6 Credits (3-Credit Course + 3-Credit Lab) 

This course provides an overview of the phases of game development, with a focus on the pre-production and production phase. You identify and discuss the components within computer science that assist in game development. Additionally, you have the opportunity to meet professional developers in the field.

Core Course Study Tours

This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:

Artificial Neural Networks and Deep Learning:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: London
  • Core Course Week: Denmark

Game Development: Programming and Practice:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin-Hamburg or Berlin-Frankfurt
  • Core Course Week: Denmark
Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
 
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
