    I joined this program as a junior ML Engineer willing to build the core expertise required in this field.

    I'm impressed by the well-structured path followed to gradually build our skills required to design, develop, and deploy ML models through weekly projects supported by direct guidance from expert instructors in a friendly and exciting environment. 

    Zaka also focused on building our non-technical skills and organized a career fair to meet other AI enthusiasts and recruiters.

    My graduation project combined segmentation and classification models with image processing to detect and qualify rooftops. It was a great project that showcased my skills and helped me kick off my journey and start applying AI to various fields.

    It's a great program that turned me from a newbie to an experienced market-ready ML Engineer!

  • Great MLC program

    "Let's build bridges, not walls." ( Martin Luther King Jr.) I started with this quote because Zaka is definitely one of those who build bridges to the door of opportunity in the machine learning field. In 16 weeks program, you will see yourself equipped with all the necessary skills to kick off your career in AI. The environment is so friendly, and all the instructors are amazing. They are very experienced in the programs they are teaching. The flow of the program shows the hard work behind it (how it covers all the aspects in a simple yet effective way). I can't find the words to describe all the things inside the program (guidance, mentorships, chitchat, and live talks) they were amazing. The career fair week was great with all the partners of Zaka, an opportunity to increase your connections and to know more about the AI community. I highly recommend this program to all who want to kick off the way in AI. So now I will leverage and enhance my acquired skills in ML and AI by participating in challenges and workshops, also by applying to internships and entry-level roles to gain market experience.

    Hello, I'm Kamar Chehimy, a Biomedical Engineer. I am participating in Zaka’s 16 week intensive Machine learning program. 

    It's really hard to find a program that goes over your expectation and it was achieved in Zaka. Everything was well organized and planned from the weekly lessons, challenges, office hours, exams and even the capstone project. You can work for couple of hours without being bored or tired due to the way they deliver the lessons and the challenges they design. 

    The team is very friendly and intelligent. You'll feel comfortable interacting and working with them. You'll absolutely enjoy your time spent on the program.

    Hey, I'm Ahmad Dorra, a software developer, and participating in the Machine Learning Certification Program (16-weeks) was one of the best decisions I made. Very well-organized lectures. High standard and easy to follow at the same time. Between the concise material (slides, deep-dive) provided and the round-clock support (office hours, slack channels) there is no need to check anywhere else. I would recommend the Bootcamp to anyone regardless of academic background since the instructors explain everything from the ground up. The quizzes and weekly challenges really helped retain most of the material. Honestly, my expectations were surpassed especially when we started learning how to build a neural network from scratch and solve back propagation on our own. That goes to show you that this course is not just about using libraries and copying code. Everything you need to get started in the AI/Ml field is in this Bootcamp. If you can code you must enroll today!!

    I came from a petroleum engineering background, and chose to enter the MLC program for the sake of following the automation trend in oil and gas.

    The learnt topics are interesting and provide various approaches to design optimized models.

    I was surprised by the advancement that neural networks can provide to the improvement the accuracies, in addition to the various parameters tuning methodologies.

    After accumulated knowledge, I made with my partner a voice analysis project that uses deep learning to identify the speech emotions and language fluency.

    From now on, I am seeking combining my energy background with the unique ML knowledge I gain with Zaka, to support the energy solutions that rely on AI.

    This 12-week program was one of the most powerful programs I have ever taken.it starts with basic knowledge about machine learning and then goes step by step into the deep aspects of how a machine acts and performers. through the 12 weeks, we had ongoing support through office hours, mentoring sessions and direct contact with the supervisors through slack.
