                                      PROGRAM OVERVIEW - WHY SHOULD I TAKE THIS PROGRAM?
                                      • Why should I enroll?
                                        Machine learning is changing countless industries, from health care to finance to market predictions. Currently, the demand for machine learning engineers far exceeds the supply. In this program, you’ll apply machine learning techniques to a variety of real-world tasks, such as customer segmentation and image classification. This program is designed to teach you foundational machine learning skills that data scientists and machine learning engineers use day-to-day.
                                      • What jobs will this program prepare me for?
                                        This program emphasizes practical coding skills that demonstrate your ability to apply machine learning techniques to a variety of business and research tasks. It is designed for people who are new to machine learning and want to build foundational skills in machine learning algorithms and techniques to either advance within their current field or position themselves to learn more advanced skills for a career transition.
                                      • How do I know if this program is right for me?
                                        This program assumes that you have had several hours of Python programming experience. Other than that, the only requirement is that you have a curiosity about machine learning. Do you want to learn more about recommendation systems or voice assistants and how they work? If so, then this program is right for you.
                                      • What is the difference between Intro to Machine Learning with PyTorch, and Intro to Machine Learning with TensorFlow Nanodegree programs?
                                        Both Nanodegree programs begin with the scikit-learn machine learning library, before pivoting to either PyTorch or TensorFlow in the Deep Learning sections.
                                        The only difference between the two programs is the deep learning framework utilized for Project 2. As such, there are accompanying lessons in each respective Nanodegree program that train you to develop machine learning models in that deep learning framework. You will complete the same project, Create an Image Classifier, in both Nanodegree programs - in PyTorch in Intro to Machine Learning with PyTorch, and in TensorFlow for Intro to Machine Learning with TensorFlow.
                                      ENROLLMENT AND ADMISSION
                                      • Do I need to apply? What are the admission criteria?
                                        No. This Nanodegree program accepts all applicants regardless of experience and specific background.
                                      • What are the prerequisites for enrollment?
                                        It is recommended that you have the following knowledge, prior to entering the program:

                                        • Familiarity with data structures like dictionaries and lists
                                        • Experience with libraries like NumPy and pandas is a plus

                                        Basic knowledge of probability and statistics, including:
                                        • Experience calculating the probability of an event
                                        • Knowing how to calculate the mean and variance of a probability distribution is a plus
                                      • If I do not meet the requirements to enroll, what should I do?
                                        You can still succeed in this program, even if you do not meet the suggested requirements. There are a few courses that can help prepare you for the program. For example:
                                      • Do I have to take the Intro to Machine Learning Nanodegree program before enrolling in the Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree program?
                                        No. Each program is independent of the other. If you are interested in machine learning, you should look at the prerequisites for each program to help you decide where you should start your journey to becoming a machine learning engineer.
                                      TUITION AND TERM OF PROGRAM
                                      • How is this Nanodegree program structured?
