    Is the hype around machine learning really worth studying?

    I am thinking about doing a Masters in Machine Learning in Imperial.

    Thinking if I have Software Engineering as bachelors, and Machine learning as Masters, I cannot be unemployed, right??

    I am expected to achieve 90%+ in my bachelors.


    Do I really want to specialise into something so specific right now, or just do masters in Software Engineering and keep my options open?

    I would recommend you to keep your options open, do the masters in Software Engineering or even Computer Science. But the best way is to contact a student from a university, they can give you better advice

    Do you like statistics and linear algebra? Lots of machine learning theory is rooted in complicated mathematics. If you do, come to Edinburgh. We have some of the best machine learning research in the whole world.

    But to me, Machine Learning looks so much better on CV lol. Software Engineering in Bachelors and then Masters in Machine Learning. I am also thinking if I do machine learning, I can still apply for any Software Engineering roles, am I right in thinking this way?

    I enjoy Maths, so it should be fine.
    I am thinking of doing the masters in Imperial, top London university. Don't know if it's wort making that commitment. I want to stay close to London, for possible Master sponsorship.

    Have a look at UCL aswell. They offer lots of different courses in machine learning and computational statistics.
