CV/ML Graduate School Prep Workshop

A Workshop for Students Considering Graduate School in Computer Vision and Machine Learning

If you want an alert when applications open (January)
if you are part of an organization encouraging URM undergrads to continue on to graduate school in STEM

Are you an undergraduate considering graduate school in Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning, or AR/VR? Are you in a historically underrepresented group for these fields (“URM”)? This workshop & seminar series, held online in April/May '22, will interest you.

  • Learn more about computer vision and machine learning through lectures and projects
  • Work with graduate students in the University of Washington's Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
  • Hear from UW CSE Graduate Advisors about available resources throughout the application process, and how to improve your graduate school applications
  • Organized by the UW Reality Lab and UW CSE’s Graduate Student Services

Application coming in January

About the Workshop

An online workshop and Seminar series designed to encourage undergraduate students - particularly those from underrepresented minority groups - to consider and successfully apply to graduate schools in computer science. Participants will hear presentations on computer vision and machine learning, meet graduate students from several UW CSE labs and be led through small-group exercises in these topics by current graduate students. There will be presentations on current graduate-level research by UW graduate students, and presentations on the graduate school application processes and resources, by staff from UW CSE Graduate Student Services.

Workshop Dates

The workshop will gather 4 times during April and early May 2022. (Exact dates TBD)

Who Should Apply?

This workshop is for undergraduate students interested in graduate school in computer science, computer vision, and machine learning. Any undergraduate student interested in a graduate degree in computer science is eligible. Target groups for this workshop are historically underrepresented groups in STEM (such as African American, Hispanic/Latino(a), American Indian/Alaskan Native, Pacific Islander, Southeast Asian, women, and students with disabilities) and people who have shown a commitment to working with and promoting the education of these groups.

Application Deadline

Exact date TBA (it will be early March 2022)
