We are very proud of the graduate students who have been in our program. As the Center of Automated Learning and Discovery, in 1999 we started with a Masters program in Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining. In 2002 we began our PhD program in Computational and Statistical Learning, while still offering the masters degree to Carnegie Mellon PhD students in other departments. In Spring 2006 we changed our name to the Machine Learning Department and also changed the name of the PhD program to Machine Learning. In 2014 we opened the masters program to external applicants. Our alumni are all over the world in academia and industry.
