Course Overview

Deep Learning for Scientists and Engineers provides students with a practical introduction to deep learning using Keras and TensorFlow.

This course focuses on the fundamental model architecture used in deep learning: the neural Network.

We will begin by building a solid foundation of the basics of deep learning and will gradually progress into more advanced topics like model training and Evaluation.

While the course emphasizes a practical approach to deep learning, there are times where just enough theory is covered to understand the why behind certain modeling procedures.


This course requires basic proficiency with Python and the scientific Python stack. Some practical experience with Jupyter Notebooks, NumPy (ndarrays), Pandas (DataFrames), and scientific visualization in Python using Matplotlib are essential to working with the code and concepts presented in this course.

If you have taken Enthought’s Python Foundations for Scientists and Engineers, you have the requisite background knowledge for this course. While not a strict requirement, it is strongly recommended to have taken Enthought’s Machine Learning for Scientists and Engineers (or have a working knowledge of basic machine learning principles) prior to taking this course.
