Where coding, application development, and problem solving all converge to develop the future

Welcome to the Machine Learning and Data Science Summer Camp at ODU. This is a two week program from June 25th – July 9th that gives students an introduction to programming and guides students towards an introduction into the dynamic computer science field of machine learning.

Coding and programming have often been called the most in-demand skills for the 21st century. And companies like Google, Nike, Amazon, Twitter, Netflix, and hundreds more are constantly looking for ways to innovate, with machine learning as the newest trend.

This course will help students with little or no programming experience get up and running on the first day by coding their own programs. By the end of the course students will understand what machine learning is, how they can use it to solve everyday problems, and will create their own advanced machine learning programs.

This course is free for accepted students, but seats are limited to 20. The application deadline is May 1st, 2018. Students will be accepted based on prior academic performance and eagerness to learn. Acceptance notifications will be sent out by May 31st.


The Machine Learning and Data Science Camp at ODU is funded by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium. For more information about the VSGC, please visit:
