2 Title A proposal to add a new major field of study in Machine Learning and Data Science to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees available within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, effective Fall Date of Preparation October 6, 2017 Contact Information Professor Alon Orlitsky Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept Gilman Drive #0407 La Jolla, CA,

3 Executive Summary We propose to establish a graduate program of study in Machine Learning and Data Science to the M.S. and Ph.D. degree offerings within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the Jacobs School of Engineering, with an effective date of Fall Students who complete the program will receive the M.S. or Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Machine Learning and Data Science). Designed for graduate students with diverse undergraduate degrees, the program will span the spectrum from fundamental theory to practical applications. It will quickly bring students up to speed with the field s mathematical and computational foundations, continue with state of the art machine-learning and algorithmic tools that undergird today s big-data analytics, and offer specialized courses that bridge the field with important branches of science and engineering. Several courses in the proposed program are already being taught in the department. A number of new courses have been proposed and are currently in the ecourse review process, while others are currently being offered as one-time special-topic courses that will be proposed as new courses in the near future. The proposed program will increase the strength and visibility of our department s existing efforts in data analytics and computation. It will attract new students interested in the rapidly growing data-science field, and will add to our research and fund raising capabilities in this important field. Section 1. Introduction 1. Aims and objectives of the program. Data has become central to our daily lives and there is growing demand for professionals with data analysis skills. The goal of this program is to give students background and preparation for employment and research in areas related to Machine Learning and Data Science. Core coursework in this program will place an emphasis on building strong mathematical and computational foundations (linear algebra, statistics and programming), and students will be able to delve into both theory and practical applications. Computing and data play an ever-growing role in all areas of human knowledge. There are potential career paths in a wide variety of businesses looking to use data effectively, as well as in government agencies, academia and health care. In recognition of this strong and imminent need, the ECE Department is proposing this new graduate program to create a talent pool that is trained in Machine Learning and Data Science. We anticipate that the student population in Machine Learning and Data Science will closely follow that of the broader Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, including many out of state and international students. While many incoming students will have a BS in electrical engineering, graduates of other engineering majors are expected as well. Prior work experience is not required, although a few students may return from industry to pursue a higher degree in this area. 2. Historical development of the field and historical development of departmental strength in the field. The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department already has significant strength in Machine Learning and Data Science. A recent survey, included in section 3.5, shows 21 ECE faculty actively working in these areas. However, the lack of an official program in these topics substantially diminishes the awareness of these efforts among both current and prospective students. Creating the program will raise our visibility and likely increase both the quality and quantity of applicants to the department. We would like prospective students to be able to specifically select Machine Learning and Data Science as their major when they apply to the ECE Department, and subsequent to their arrival here, take courses centering around and designed specifically for this field.

4 3. Timetable for development of the program, including enrollment projections. The program is ready to go now. A group of professors within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department is already working in this area, and many of the necessary classes are already being taught. Other classes are currently being taught as Special Topics courses and we are in the process of submitting proposals for them to become new courses. We would like to make Machine Learning and Data Science an official program within the department to which students can apply, and allow them to focus specifically in this area. Students already enrolled in another ECE major will have the option of petitioning to transfer into this new major. The new program will not reduce the overall enrollment within the department, and will likely increase enrollment due to increased visibility and the high demand for a formal program in this area of study. This demand can be observed from current students who overwhelmingly choose machine-learning related courses, as well as from student applicants who ask about the availability of such courses. 4. Relation of the proposed program to existing programs on campus and to the Campus Academic Plan. This program is a natural development for the ECE Department. As noted above, a number of faculty members are focused on this area already: they teach classes in Statistical Learning, Big Network Data, Probability and Statistics for Data Science, image processing, and bio-informatics, to name a few, and their graduate students already do research in these areas. The lack of an official program in Machine Learning and Data Science reduces the visibility of our strength in this area to prospective students, and thus likely dissuades some excellent students from applying to our department. By creating an official program in this area, we can increase the quality and quantity of students who apply to the department. 5. Interrelationship of the program with other University of California institutions, if applicable. UC Berkeley offers Master of Information and Data Science in the School of Information UC Davis no specific graduate program in Machine Learning and Data Science, but both are areas of active research in the Computer Science Department UC Irvine no specific graduate program in Machine Learning or Data Science UCLA offers Master of Science in Engineering With Certificate of Specialization in Data Science Engineering UC Merced no specific graduate program in Machine Learning and Data Science UC Riverside no specific graduate program in Machine Learning and Data Science, but Data Science is an area of active research in the Computer Science and Engineering Department UC San Diego Currently proposing program in this area (this proposal) UC San Francisco no specific program in Machine Learning and Data Science UC Santa Barbara no specific program in Machine Learning and Data Science, but both are areas of research in the Computer Science Department UC Santa Cruz no specific program in Machine Learning and Data Science, but topics are covered in several departments In addition, a number of non-uc schools, including Stanford, MIT, Columbia, GeorgiaTech, and the University of Michigan, offer Masters and Ph.D. programs in data science. 6. Department or group which will administer the program. The program will be administered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. The process for administering the program is already in place as students are already taking many of the classes required for this major. The Machine Learning and Data Science program will be managed in the same way as other fields within the department, including degree planners, procedures for exams and thesis, etc. Other existing fields within the ECE department include those listed below. Note that the department is currently proposing to eliminate three of these areas, and will be submitting a separate proposal to the Graduate Council with those requests. The new major field

5 of Machine Learning and Data Science will complement several of our current areas, particularly Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control. 1. Applied Ocean Sciences (in process of eliminating) 2. Applied Optics and Photonics 3. Communication Theory and Systems 4. Computer Engineering 5. Electronic Circuits and Systems 6. Applied Physics - Electronic Devices and Materials 7. Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control 8. Magnetic Recording (in process of eliminating) 9. Applied Physics - Space Science (in process of eliminating) 10. Signal and Image Processing 11. Nanoscale Devices and Systems 12. Medical Devices and Systems Section 2. Program 1. Undergraduate preparation for admission. Students will have the same admission requirements as for the rest of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Prospective graduate students apply to a specific major within ECE, and applications to the Machine Learning and Data Science major will be reviewed with particular attention placed on performance in courses related to machine learning, data science, computation, and statistics. 2. Foreign language. There will be no foreign language requirement that is specific to Machine Learning and Data Science. If the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department adopts a foreign language requirement in the future, that requirement will flow down to this program. 3. Program of study: a. Specific fields of emphasis Currently, each ECE specialty area has its own individual set of competency course requirements, but all majors, including Machine Learning and Data Science, have the same total credit requirement as described below: (a) M.S. degree: Complete 48 academic units of which at least 36 units must be in graduate courses. Among the 48 units, ECE 299 (graduate research) cannot be counted for more than 8 units for Plan I or more than 4 units for Plan II. Students in Plan I must submit an M.S. thesis and pass the oral defense of the thesis, and students in Plan II must pass a written comprehensive examination. (b) Ph.D. degree: Complete 48 academic units of which at least 36 units must be in graduate courses. ECE 299 (graduate research) cannot be counted for more than 8 units. To receive the Ph.D. degree, students must pass the Preliminary Examination, the University Qualifying Examination (advancing to candidacy), and complete and defend the Ph.D. dissertation. The focus of the program in Machine Learning and Data Science is embodied in a combination of existing and new courses offered by the ECE Department. Broadly speaking, there will be four emphasis areas: 1. Core: Basic mathematical courses needed for further learning of the field - linear algebra, machine learning, probability and statistics, and programming. 2. Analytics: Advanced mathematical and statistical tools for modeling and understanding data.

6 3. Computation: algorithms, distributed processing, and hardware platforms for large-scale machine learning. 4. Applications: machine learning and data science applications to diverse fields such as robotics, bioinformatics, and networking. b.

Questions and evaluation methods will be consistent with the rest of the ECE department. f. Licensing requirements N/A No licensing requirements are involved in this field. 4. Field examinations oral. The preliminary exam will be consistent with the rest of the ECE department. It will include a brief presentation of the student s research to date, followed by an oral examination based on two courses of the student s choosing. Professors will have a wide latitude to choose the questions from among these general areas, in order to evaluate the student s thought process and mastery of the field. Passing the exam is contingent upon a consensus decision of the exam committee, which includes three faculty members of the student s choosing, accepted by the student s advisor. Any changes to the ECE department policy on preliminary exams will flow down to this program. 5. Qualifying examinations oral. The qualifying exam will be consistent with the rest of the ECE department. It will include a summary of the student s research results to date, and their research plans for finishing their degree. Passing the exam is contingent upon a consensus decision of the exam committee, which will consist of five members, including two from outside the department, selected by the student and approved by the student s advisor. Any changes to the ECE department policy on qualifying exams will flow down to this program. 6. Thesis and/or dissertation. The requirements for the thesis will be consistent with the rest of the ECE department. The thesis will be a written exposition of the student s research work. It will be reviewed by the members of the final defense committee, who are typically the same as the members of the qualifying exam committee. Any changes to the ECE department policy on thesis requirements will flow down to this program. 7. Final examination. The final defense exam will be consistent with the rest of the ECE department. It will include an oral presentation of the student s research. Passing the exam is contingent upon a consensus decision of the exam committee, which will consist of five members, including two from outside the department, selected by the student and approved by the student s advisor. They are typically the same as the members of the qualifying exam committee Any changes to the ECE department policy on final defenses will flow down to this program. 8. Explanation of special requirements over and above Graduate Division minimum requirements. None. 9. Relationship of master s and doctor s programs (if applicable). There is no particular relationship between the M.S. and Ph.D. programs, other than sharing the same classes. Students in the M.S. program may join the Ph.D. program if they find a willing advisor, as with any other area within the ECE department.

8 10. Special preparation for careers in teaching. There is no particular preparation for careers in teaching. Those students who wish to pursue an academic career may choose to be TAs for various ECE classes to gain practical experience in the classroom. 11. Sample program. Below we are providing a comparison of the course requirements in Machine Learning and Data Science, and the course requirements in Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control. While these two majors have different areas of focus, these are the two programs of study in Electrical and Computer Engineering that have the most overlap. In addition to the course requirements listed below in these sample programs, all M.S. students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department must pass a written comprehensive exam or defend a thesis prior to graduation, and all Ph.D. students must pass the preliminary exam by the end of the second year, pass the university qualifying exam by the end of the fourth year, and pass the final defense of the dissertation prior to graduation.

9 12. Normative time from matriculation to degree. The normal time to degree is expected to be 2 years for the M.S., and 6 years for the Ph.D. Degree progress limits and cut-off times will be consistent with the rest of the department, and are subject to ECE and UCSD rules. Section 3. Projected Need 1. Student demand for the program. Machine learning and data science are among the most popular topics among current students. This is evidenced by the number of students taking our graduate machine-learning classes, which often exceeds 100 compared to typically less than 50 in other classes. 2. Opportunities for placement of graduates. According to several surveys, there is a very favorable market for data-science graduates. For example, in 2015, the international data corporation anticipated a shortage of 180,000 data scientists in 2018, the Sloan Review wrote that 40% of companies struggle to recruit and retain talent in data science, and Glassdoor reported that starting salaries for data scientists are significantly higher than those in related disciplines. 3. Importance to the discipline. Machine learning and data science are central to many facets of electrical and computer engineering. There is strong demand for specialists trained in these areas and we currently have significant strength in these areas. However, we do not have a specific major to which student can apply. The establishment of a major code in Machine Learning and Data Science will increase visibility of our strengths, and lead to more and higher quality applicants, further enhancing UCSD s strong reputation in engineering. 4. Ways in which the program will meet the needs of society. There is currently a shortage of individuals with strong data science skills, and those who possess these skills are in high demand. We are addressing the machine learning and data science talent shortage by creating this program which will enhance our ability to provide high quality job candidates to a wide range of organizations including large high-tech companies and government agencies. 5.

A number of universities in California offer classes related to Machine Learning and Data Science, but there are very few specific graduate programs in this area. Creating a specific program in Machine Learning and Data Science will identify this as an area of strength for UC San Diego and the Jacobs School of Engineering. We predict it will allow us to attract a larger and higher quality body of applicants in this area to our Electrical and Computer Engineering department. Section 4. Faculty The following faculty members are currently conducting research and/or teaching courses in this area:

Section 5. Courses The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department has been offering many of the courses we are proposing for the Machine Learning and Data Science major for many years, and others have been added to our course offerings in the last two to three years. They will continue to be staffed the same way that they have been for the past several years, with typical instructors listed after the course titles (see Section 2.3.c., and below). Thus, there is no effect on staffing levels. Additional faculty members may be hired as necessary as the program expands in time, in line with the overall growth of the department. The core courses are: ECE 143 (currently ECE 188, Special Topic) - Programming for Data Analysis (Instructor varies) This is a hands- on course designed to teach students Python and its usage in Data Science applications. Topics include: understanding Python object -oriented and functional programming styles, learning key scientific computing packages, applying key Python data structures and algorithms effectively, enhancing productivity with Python development workflows, and developing deployable codes using modern package management and source control. ECE Linear Algebra and Application (Piya Pal) This course will build mathematical foundations of linear algebraic techniques and justify their use in signal processing, communication, and machine learning. Topics include geometry of vector and Hilbert spaces, orthogonal projection, systems of linear equations and role of sparsity, eigenanalysis, Hermitian matrices and variational characterization, positive semidefinite matrices, singular value decomposition, and principal component analysis. Prerequisites: graduate standing. ECE 271A - Statistical Learning I (Nuno Vasconcelos) Bayesian decision theory; parameter estimation; maximum likelihood; the bias-variance trade-off; Bayesian estimation; the predictive distribution; conjugate and noninformative priors; dimensionality and dimensionality reduction; principal component analysis; Fisher s linear discriminant analysis; density estimation; parametric vs.

13 kernel-based methods; expectation-maximization; applications. (Recommended prerequisites: ECE 109.) Prerequisites: graduate standing. ECE 225A (currently ECE 289, Special Topic) - Probability and Statistics for Data Science (Alon Orlitsky) The course reinforces students intuitive, theoretical, and computational understanding of probability and statistics and builds on these foundations to introduce more advanced concepts useful in both data-science research and practice. The following topics will be covered. Basics: counting, probability, random variables, common distributions, distribution properties. Inequalities: Markov, Chebyshev, Chernoff, Jensen. Convergence: modes of convergence, laws of large numbers, central limit theorem. Estimation: sampling, mean squared error, confidence intervals, regression. Hypothesis testing: error types, significance tests, p values. Python programs, examples, and visualizations will be used throughout the course. Prerequisites: graduate standing. Section 6. Resource Requirements Estimated for the first 5 years the additional cost of the program, by year, for each of the following categories: 1. FTE faculty none 2. Library acquisition none 3. Computing costs none 4. Equipment none 5. Space and other capital facilities none 6. Other operating costs none No new resources will be required for this program. Professors who are involved will continue to teach the same classes. Any expansion of the program will be part of the overall ECE department expansion and hiring plan. The involved professors already have established laboratories, space, computing resources, etc. Section 7. Graduate Student Support Graduate students will be supported in the same way as they are currently supported in the overall ECE department. Our MS students are typically offered admission without funding. For PhD students, support typically involves a fellowship for the first year, followed by graduate student research positions paid by grants or contracts for the remainder of their studies. The fellowships will come from the overall pool for the department. Involved professors already receive fellowship allocations from other groups, and those would be reduced accordingly so that each professor gets, on average, the same number of fellowships regardless of which group they are involved with, or if they are involved with multiple groups. Graduate student research positions for the following years will be paid by the grants and contracts of the professors who are involved with the Machine Learning and Data Science program. Professors who are already doing work in this area are already supporting their students on existing grants and contracts, and nothing will change with the creation of the Machine Learning and Data Science program. Those students are already taking the Machine Learning and Data Science courses that are already available to them, so this program will not change anything with regards to student support. It will only involve re-allocation or re-naming of some support structures to be associated with this program, but will not change the overall average support profile for any of the professors, nor of those associated with other groups. Teaching assistantships are generally allocated to the professors who are teaching the corresponding courses, and they choose graduate students based on class needs, and the skills and experience of the applicants. This will not change with the creation of the Machine Learning and Data Science program. Average per student support from all sources will remain exactly as it is, consistent with ECE department averages. Section 8. Governance

14 The Department or Group that will administer the program is the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. This program will be governed in the same way as all other programs within the department. This proposal is only a mechanism to allow students to apply to this topic, and to officially take their preliminary exams in this topic without requiring an exception.

Responses from Chairs/Deans/Department heads We received responses from Dean Pisano, the Halicioglu Institute for Data Science, the ECE Department at UCLA and the School of Information at UC Berkeley. The responses are strong and supportive of our Machine Learning and Data Science program proposal. Only two suggestions were made: the first is to consider increasing the number of computational classes within the scope of the required course work, and the second is to formally address the ethical and privacy issues that are raised by the growing use of machine learning and data. Once we start teaching these courses we will evaluate the suggestion offered about computing, and while we anticipate that ethics and privacy issues will be addressed in many of the courses offered we will also evaluate how we can best highlight these issues in the curriculum. The responses from the heads of other schools and departments are included below.

18 November 27, 2017 Truong Nguyen, Ph.D. Professor and Chair Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept. University of California, San Diego 9500 Gilman Dr. La Jolla, CA Dear Truong, Thank you for your leadership in pulling together a proposal for addition of new graduate major field of study in Machine Learning and Data Science to the MS and PhD degrees available within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in the Jacobs School of Engineering. We have reviewed the proposal and fully appreciate the intent of the new graduate program option to prepare students for an interdisciplinary career in the emerging area. We note program focus on foundational subjects in statistical learning and optimization and consider it to be a particular strength of the program while at the same time providing access to a large and diverse group of application areas where machine learning can be applied. We also see a potential benefit to students from other departments who wish to enhance their graduate studies by taking the comprehensive set of classes offered in this program, on the theory, implementation and application of Machine Learning and Data Science. Overall the program is an attractive option among a dozen or so majors in the ECE department and will complement current area of Intelligent Systems, Robotics and Control. We note that the new major options requires existing total credit requirements to ensure a strong graduate program. We look forward to partnering with the ECE Department on faculty recruitment, collaborative research initiatives, and summer research internship initiatives. We are pleased to offer our support for the success of the program, Sincerely yours, Rajesh K. Gupta Professor of Computer Science & Eng. Jeffrey L. Elman Distinguished Professor of Cognitive Science

19 From: Greg Pottie Subject: Re: Request for comments on our Department's effort to create a graduate degree in machine learning and data science. Date: December 4, 2017 at 12:52:44 PM PST To: Alon Orlitsky Dear Professor Orlitsky I have reviewed the proposal for the proposed graduate program in Machine Learning and Data Science in the UCSD ECE Department. In my opinion, it will be a rigorous and popular major, of considerable professional value to the students. It builds on a number of existing graduate courses in the Department, and reflects the research interests of a significant fraction of the faculty as a whole. As noted in the proposal courses already offered in this area have enrollment considerably above the Department average. The only resource issue to consider with this proposal is that the enhanced visibility will attract even more students, and so the Department will need to prepare for large enrollments in the core graduate courses of the major (e.g., by providing adequate TA or Special Reader resources). I would expect that the increased visibility will also attract more students from other majors at UCSD; if there are lecture hall size limitations, some prioritization for enrollment of ECE students might become necessary via the mechanism of wait lists. In other words, the only risk is that the program will be too successful.

20 Comments on the Proposed Machine Learning and Data Science Graduate Program to be added to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees available within the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, UCSD Effective Fall 2018 By Vwani Roychowdhury UCLA Quality and academic rigor of the program This is a very timely program, and the proposed courses and requirements (for both MS and Ph.D. studies) have been carefully thought out and crafted so that they strike a judicious balance between many of the theoretical foundations of machine learning, and the pressing need for integrating data science and machine learning into a wide array of applications and products. I believe that the Aims and objectives of the program of the report correctly points out that the enabling driving forces behind the current era of information revolution are the availability of large-scale and diverse data sets, and the ubiquitous access to computing resources to store and process such data in a timely fashion. A lot of the conceptual and theoretical foundations that have already been developed, especially by those working in Information theory and Statistical Signal processing areas, are now practicable for the first time: There is enough data to model complex systems, and there is sufficient computing power to implement the various algorithms and data models that have been around for a while now. Deep Learning is an important data point in this regard: It implements ideas and algorithms known for several decades, but enabled only now by access to large-scale training data and matching computing power. I am heartened to see that the proposed effort acknowledges these core realities upfront and then proceeds to design a program that combines core strengths of the department in statistical information processing, machine learning and computing to design a first rate program that will prepare students for effective career in data science and applications. My only suggestion is that the program could emphasize the computing aspects of data science a bit more in the required course work. Currently I see that the following 100- level course, ECE 143: Programming for Data Analysis. is a required core course in the Data Science and Machine Learning program; in addition, the students must take at least another course from the Computation area, which has three 200-level courses (ECE 2xx) that I assume are yet to be developed. Perhaps, having a sequence of two core courses on the computing aspects of Big Data would be more appropriate. Proficiency and fluency in

21 the computing aspects of data processing, and being able to program the ideas and algorithms that the students learn in theory courses, is a defining characteristics of the data science movement that we are witnessing now. So my suggestion would be to perhaps strengthen this computing aspect more, which is already strong in the current proposal. Adequacy of the size and expertise of faculty to administer the program UCSD ECE department has a world-class faculty and as I already mentioned, modern data science and machine learning practices borrow heavily from the theory and concepts developed in the traditional Electrical Engineering and Computer Science disciplines. Thus ECE is particularly suited to be offering such a program. Adequacy of the facilities and budgets ECE department at UCSD has a long history of providing world-class education and I have full confidence in its ability to provide adequate resources for a successful implementation of the program. Applicant pool and placement prospects for the graduates There is a strong student demand for a program like this. In courses that we teach at UCLA related to Data Science and ML, typical graduate student enrollments exceed 150 routinely per class offering. Moreover, both in industry and academy there is a strong need for hiring in this field. All forecasts point to a strong demand for graduates of such programs for many years to come. Concluding Remarks: This is a timely and a very well designed program that will benefit both UCSD and the student body. It will also greatly benefit the larger eco-system comprising of academy, research and industry and contribute to the economy and the society at large. I strongly support this program.

22 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY BERKELEY DAVIS IRVINE LOS ANGELES RIVERSIDE SAN DIEGO SAN FRANCISCO SANTA BARBARA SANTA CRUZ December 5, 2017 OFFICE OF THE DEAN SCHOOL OF INFORMATION BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA Dear Professor Orlitsky: I am happy to provide my input on the proposed new program in Machine Learning and Data Science leading to MS and PhD degrees in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (ECED) of the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering This is a timely proposal. It is important for the University of California to play a leadership role in data science, a field that has strong roots in this state. Machine learning and the related statistical and computational tools are transforming not only scholarly research but also many aspects of the economy and society. Data science education is an investment in our future. The UC Berkeley School of Information launched a self-supporting Master s of Information and Data Science (MIDS) degree in 2014 to educate professionals seeking to be data science leaders in their organizations. The proposal under review, by contrast, adds a new field of study to the existing state-supported ECED graduate programs, allowing Masters and PhD students to specialize in Machine Learning and Data Science. Quality and Academic Rigor This is a very strong proposal. The ECED at the Jacobs School of Engineering is home to a substantial core of faculty members working in probability, statistical machine learning, and related analytical and computational tools/techniques, as well as key application areas (from robotics and bio signal processing, to network data and physical and embedded systems.) The program is well designed and technically rigorous. The 4 core courses provide a strong foundation in the mathematics, probability, statistics, and programming skills that all students will need for more advanced graduate work in the field. The 4 required courses in analytics, computation, and applications will provide students with in-depth exposure to current research in machine learning and data science tools and applications. Ideally some of the technical electives will also be in related fields, further deepening their expertise. While this is a solid program of technical education, I would be remiss in not asking about how the curriculum exposes students to the ethical and privacy issues that are raised by the growing use of machine learning and data at scale. I suspect that the Jacobs School offers courses on the social and human aspects of technology but they may need updating. The collection and use of data to address human, societal, and scientific problems raises important issues, ranging from potential biases in the data collection and classification process to questions about ownership of personal data and privacy in a world of ubiquitous sensor networks. Graduate students who will work in this field should be exposed to these issues.

23 Adequacy of the size and expertise of faculty to administer the program The proposal lists 21 ECED faculty members who will teach and administer the program all of whom are doing research that is relevant to machine learning and data science. This represents a healthy mix of Assistant Professors, Professors, and Distinguished Professors. Most (if not all) of the courses for the program are already being taught, and there appears to be more than sufficient personnel to staff all of the core courses as well as the electives. In short, the scale and expertise of the faculty are more than adequate to mount a strong program in the area. This program is likely to increase the visibility of ECED and, over time, grow enrollment because of the robust demand for machine learning and data science education. Over time the department may need additional resources. That should, however, easily handled within the normal unit and campus recruitment processes. Adequacy of the facilities and budgets The program does not require any additional facilities or other resources; rather it involves redeploying existing faculty and classes to this new program. The professors who are involved have ongoing research contracts and grants that they will use to support PhD students in the field. They already have laboratories, space, and computing resources. As noted above, if demand is substantial additional facilities and budgets may be needed, but not immediately. Applicant pool and prospects for graduates There is far more demand for programs in the field of machine learning and data science than there is supply. MIDS has grown from an initial cohort of 28 students in 2014 to close to almost 500 enrolled today and we accept only 25-30% of total applicants. I have no doubt that a strong program with a high quality faculty, like that in ECED, will be attractive to existing students, and has the potential to increase applications to the department s graduate programs. There are now many studies documenting the shortages of graduates with data science skills. Graduates of our MIDS program increase their salaries by over 70%. Our experience shows that there is strong demand for graduates with these skills from every sector of society: small firms, large firms, consumer-oriented and enterprise-oriented businesses, a wide range of industries, government and non-profit organizations, as well as corporate research labs and universities. We have had no problem placing grads in attractive and well-paid positions, and I have little reason to believe that the UCSD program would be different. Thanks for the opportunity to comment on this program. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions. Best regards, AnnaLee Saxenian Dean & Professor 2

150 COPY FROM UC SAN DIEGO GENERAL CATALOG Interim Update (November 1, 2017) Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE (graduate curriculum) Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) [ undergraduate program courses faculty ] Earl Warren College Jacobs Hall Undergraduate Affairs, Room 2906 Graduate Affairs, Room All courses, faculty listings, and curricular and degree requirements described herein are subject to change or deletion without notice. The Graduate Programs Master of Science The ECE department offers MS programs in electrical and computer engineering. The MS programs are research oriented and are intended to provide the intensive technical preparation necessary for advanced technical work in the engineering profession or subsequent pursuit of a PhD. The MS may be earned either with a thesis (Plan 1) or with a comprehensive examination (Plan 2). However, continuation in the PhD program requires a comprehensive examination so most students opt for Plan 2. Course Requirements: The total course requirements for the master of science degrees in electrical engineering and computer engineering are forty-eight units (twelve quarter courses), respectively, of which at least thirty-six units must be in graduate courses. Note that this is greater than the minimum requirements of the university. The department maintains a list of core courses for each disciplinary area from which the thirty-six graduate course units must be selected. The current list may be obtained from the department graduate office or the official website of the department. Students in interdisciplinary programs may select other core courses with the approval of their academic adviser. The course requirements must be completed within two years of full-time study. Students will be assigned a faculty adviser who will help select courses and approve their overall academic curriculum. Degree Requirements: Only upper-division (100-level) and graduate (200-level) courses in which a student is assigned grades A, B, or C (including plus [+] or minus [ ]) can be used to satisfy degree requirements. The fortyeight units of required course work must be taken for a letter grade, except in cases where students take ECE 299, the ECE graduate research course. Graduate research courses in the Irwin and Joan Jacobs School of Engineering may be counted toward the degree. Graduate research courses from other departments may be counted toward the degree with curriculum adviser approval. Graduate research courses (i.e., ECE 299) are the only courses where the S/U grading option is allowed. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 overall. Thesis and Comprehensive Requirements: The department offers both MS Plan 1 (thesis) and MS Plan 2 (written comprehensive exam). Students in the MS program must select either Plan 1 or Plan 2 by their fourth quarter of study. Students in the MS Plan 1 (thesis) must take twelve units of ECE 299 (Research) and must submit a thesis as described in the general requirements of the university. Students in the MS Plan 2 (written comprehensive exam) may count four units of ECE 299 (Research) toward the thirty-six graduate units required and must attempt to pass the departmental written comprehensive examination not later than the fall quarter of their second year of study. Students who pass the written examination at the MS level will receive a terminal master s degree, if they do not already have one.

151 COPY FROM UC SAN DIEGO GENERAL CATALOG Interim Update (November 1, 2017) Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE (graduate curriculum) Transfer to the PhD Program: Students in the MS program wishing to be considered for admission to the PhD program should consult their academic adviser as soon as possible. Students must notify department of their intent to transfer by their fourth quarter of study. Transfer from the MS to the PhD program is possible provided that the student Satisfy all requirements for initial admission to the PhD program, including submission of GRE general test scores, and be approved for consideration for transfer to the PhD program by the ECE Graduate Admissions Committee. Identify a faculty member who agrees, in writing, to serve as that student s academic and PhD research adviser. In consultation with the academic adviser, design and complete a program of course work that satisfies all course requirements and constraints for a PhD discipline appropriate to the student s research. All students in the PhD program are required to satisfy all PhD requirements as described below. Should the student not be admitted to the PhD program, this program of course work will serve, with the approval of the academic adviser and the ECE Graduate Affairs Committee, to satisfy the course work requirements for the MS. Pass the preliminary (comprehensive) examination at the level required for continuation in the PhD program. A student failing to pass the comprehensive exam at this required level will not be admitted to the PhD program, and will instead continue in the MS program. Maintain a GPA of at least 3.4 in the appropriate core graduate courses.

152 COPY FROM UC SAN DIEGO GENERAL CATALOG Interim Update (November 1, 2017) Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE (graduate curriculum) WES 207. Capstone Project: Wireless Embedded Systems The Doctoral Programs The ECE department offers graduate programs leading to the PhD in twelve disciplines within electrical and computer engineering, as described in detail below. The PhD is a research degree requiring completion of the PhD program course requirements, satisfactory performance on the comprehensive (PhD preliminary) examination and university qualifying examination, and submission and defense of a doctoral thesis (as described under the Graduate Admission section of this catalog). Students in the PhD program must pass the comprehensive exam (PhD preliminary) before the beginning of the winter quarter of the second year of graduate study. To ensure timely progress in their research, students are strongly encouraged to identify a faculty member willing to supervise their doctoral research by the end of their first year of study. Students should begin defining and preparing for their thesis research as soon as they have passed the comprehensive exam (PhD preliminary). They should plan on taking the university qualifying examination about one year later. The university does not permit students to continue in graduate study for more than four years without passing this examination. At the qualifying examination the student will give an oral presentation on research accomplishments to date and the thesis proposal to a campuswide committee. The committee will decide if the work and proposal has adequate content and reasonable chance for success. They may require that the student modify the proposal and may require a further review. The final PhD requirements are the submission of a dissertation and the dissertation defense (as described under the Graduate Admission section of this catalog). Course Requirements: The total course requirements for the PhD in electrical engineering are essentially the same as the MS, and consist of forty-eight units (twelve quarter courses), of which at least thirty-six units must be in graduate courses. Note that this is greater than the minimum requirements of the university. The department maintains a list of core courses for each disciplinary area from which the thirty-six graduate course units must be selected. The current list may be obtained from the ECE department graduate office or the official website of the department. Students in the interdisciplinary programs may select other core courses with the approval of their academic adviser. The course requirements must be completed within two years of full-time study. Students in the PhD programs may count no more than eight units of ECE 299 toward their course requirements. Students who already hold an MS in electrical engineering must nevertheless satisfy the requirements for the core courses. However, graduate courses taken elsewhere can be substituted for specific courses with the approval of the academic adviser. Degree Requirements: Only upper-division (100-level) and graduate (200-level) courses in which a student is assigned grades A, B, or C (including plus [+] or minus [ ]) can be used to satisfy degree requirements. The fortyeight units of required course work must be taken for a letter grade, except in cases where students take ECE 299, the ECE graduate research course. Graduate research courses in the Jacobs School may be counted toward the degree. Graduate research courses from other departments may be counted toward the degree with curriculum adviser approval. Graduate research courses (i.e., ECE 299) are the only courses where the S/U grading option is allowed. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 overall. In addition, a GPA of 3.4 in the core graduate courses is generally expected. Comprehensive Exam (PhD Preliminary): PhD students must find a faculty member who will agree to supervise their thesis research. This should be done before the start of the second year of study. They should then devote at least half their time to research and must pass the PhD preliminary examination before the beginning of the winter

153 COPY FROM UC SAN DIEGO GENERAL CATALOG Interim Update (November 1, 2017) Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE (graduate curriculum) quarter of the second year of study. This is an oral exam in which the student presents his or her research to a committee of three ECE faculty members, and is examined orally for proficiency in his or her area of specialization. The outcome of the exam is based on the student s research presentation, proficiency demonstrated in the student s area of specialization and overall academic record and performance in the graduate program. Successful completion of the PhD preliminary examination will also satisfy the MS Plan 2 comprehensive exam requirement. University Qualifying Exam: Students who have passed the comprehensive exam (PhD preliminary) should plan to take the university qualifying examination approximately a year after passing the comprehensive exam (PhD preliminary). The university does not permit students to continue in graduate study for more than four years without passing this examination. The university qualifying examination is an oral exam in which the student presents his or her thesis proposal to a university-wide committee. After passing this exam the student is advanced to candidacy. Dissertation Defense: The final PhD requirements are the submission of a dissertation, and the dissertation defense (as described under the Graduate Admission section of this catalog). Students who are advanced to candidacy may register for any ECE course on an S/U basis. Departmental Time Limits: Students who enter the PhD program with an MS from another institution are expected to complete their PhD requirements a year earlier than BS entrants. They must discuss their program with an academic adviser in their first quarter of residence. If their PhD program overlaps significantly with their earlier MS work, the time limits for the comprehensive and qualifying exams will also be reduced by one year. Specific time limits for the PhD program, assuming entry with a BS, are as follows: 1. The Comprehensive Exam (PhD Preliminary) must be completed before the start of the winter quarter of the second year of full-time study. 2. The University Qualifying Exam must be completed before the start of the fifth year of full-time study. 3. Support Limit: Students may not receive financial support through the university for more than seven years of full-time study (six years with an MS). 4. Registered Time Limit: Students may not register as graduate students for more than eight years of fulltime study (seven years with an MS).

Research thrusts cover the study of ultrasmall structures (nanotechnology) as well as ultrahigh speed transistors and optoelectronic devices. The department has available a complete facility for fabricating prototype silicon and III-V compound transistors and other devices, electron-beam lithography, a Rutherford backscattering facility, molecular beam and organo-metallic vapor-phase epitaxy, cryogenic temperature facilities, scanning tunneling microscopes, microwave and mm-wave measurement facilities, as well as auxiliary apparatus for X-ray, optical, and galvanomagnetic characterization of materials, devices, and components.

155 COPY FROM UC SAN DIEGO GENERAL CATALOG Interim Update (November 1, 2017) Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE (graduate curriculum) 7. Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control: This information sciences-based field is concerned with the design of human-interactive intelligent systems that can sense the world (defined as some specified domain of interest); represent or model the world; detect and identify states and events in the world; reason about and make decisions about the world; and/or act on the world, perhaps all in real-time. A sense of the type of systems and applications encountered in this discipline can be obtained by viewing the projects shown at the ECE department website. Borovoy, Aaron 9/25/2017 1:30 PM Formatted: Outline numbered + Level: 1 + Numbering Style: 1, 2, 3,... + Start at: 1 + Alignment: Left + Aligned at: 0.25" + Tab after: 0.5" + Indent at: 0.5" The development of such sophisticated systems is necessarily an interdisciplinary activity. To sense and succinctly represent events in the world requires knowledge of signal processing, computer vision, information theory, coding theory, and databasing; to detect and reason about states of the world utilizes concepts from statistical detection theory, hypothesis testing, pattern recognition, time series analysis, and artificial intelligence; to make good decisions about highly complex systems requires knowledge of traditional mathematical optimization theory and contemporary near-optimal approaches such as evolutionary computation; and to act upon the world requires familiarity with concepts of control theory and robotics. Very often learning and adaptation are required as either critical aspects of the world are poorly known at the outset, and must be refined online, or the world is non-stationary and our system must constantly adapt to it as it evolves. In addition to the theoretical information and computer science aspects, many important hardware and software issues must be addressed in order to obtain an effective fusion of a complicated suite of sensors, computers, and problem dynamics into one integrated system. Faculty affiliated with the ISRC subarea are involved in virtually all aspects of the field, including applications to intelligent communications systems; advanced human-computer interfacing; statistical signal- and image-processing; intelligent tracking and guidance systems; biomedical system identification and control; and control of teleoperated and autonomous multiagent robotic systems. 8. Magnetic Recording is an interdisciplinary field involving physics, material science, communications, and mechanical engineering. The physics of magnetic recording involves studying magnetic heads, recording media, and the process of transferring information between the heads and the medium. General areas of investigation include: nonlinear behavior of magnetic heads, very high frequency loss mechanisms in head materials, characterization of recording media by micromagnetic and many body interaction analysis, response of the medium to the application of spatially varying vectorial head fields, fundamental analysis of medium nonuniformities leading to media noise, and experimental studies of the channel transfer function emphasizing nonlinearities, interferences, and noise. Current projects include numerical simulations of high density digital recording in metallic thin films, micromagnetic analysis of magnetic reversal in individual magnetic particles, theory of recorded transition phase noise and magnetization induced nonlinear bit shift in thin metallic films, and analysis of the thermal-temporal stability of interacting fine particles.

Applied Physics Space Science: This program focuses on the study of radio waves propagating through turbulent media. The theory of such propagation is also studied with a view to removing the distorting effects of the turbulent medium on astronomical observations and providing an accurate restoration of the intrinsic signals. Space science is concerned with the nature of the sun, its ionized and super-sonic outer atmosphere (the solar wind), and the interaction of the solar wind with various bodies in the solar system. Theoretical studies include the interaction of the solar wind with Earth, planets, and comets; cosmic dusty-plasmas; waves in the ionosphere; and the physics of shocks. A major theoretical effort involves the use of supercomputers for modeling and simulation studies of both fluid and kinetic processes in space plasmas.

156 COPY FROM UC SAN DIEGO GENERAL CATALOG Interim Update (November 1, 2017) Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE (graduate curriculum) Students are trained in one or more of the interrelated fields, electromagnetics, space plasma physics, radio astronomy, wave propagation, numerical methods, and signal processing. 10. Signal and Image Processing: This program explores engineering issues related to the modeling of signals starting from the physics of the problem, developing and evaluating algorithms for extracting the necessary information from the signal, and the implementation of these algorithms on electronic and opto-electronic systems. Examples of research areas include filter design; fast transforms; adaptive filters; spectrum estimation and modeling; sensor array processing; image processing; motion estimation from images; and the implementation of signal processing algorithms using appropriate technologies with applications in sonar, radar, speech, geophysics, computer-aided tomography, image restoration, robotic vision, and pattern recognition. 11. Nanoscale Devices and Systems: This program area addresses the science and engineering of materials and device structures with characteristic sizes of ~100nm and below, at which phenomena such as quantum confinement and single-electron effects in electronics, near-field behavior in optics and electromagnetics, single-domain effects in magnetics, and a host of other effects in mechanical, fluidic, and biological systems emerge and become dominant. Both fundamental materials, processing, and device technologies, as well as the integration of such technologies into complex systems with consideration of system drivers and constraints as guides for the development of new materials and devices, are encompassed within this program. Specific topics of current interest include the following: nanoscale CMOS technologies; nonsilicon nanoelectronic devices and systems; semiconductor nanowires and other solid-state nanostructures; plasmonic phenomena in nanostructures; nanophotonic materials, devices, and systems; high-density magnetic storage media and systems; nanomagnetic and spintronic devices; micro- and nanofluidics; new technologies for energy generation, conversion, and storage; and advanced sensor devices.

Medical Devices and Systems: The program is established for students interested in applying their knowledge in electrical and computer engineering to medicine. The goal of the program is to educate graduate students to improve, develop, and invent electrical engineering hardware/software tools and techniques for the medical field to benefit patients, caregivers, and society. Medicine is one area that has been immensely impacted by electrical and computer engineering. As examples, electrical and computer engineers have played important roles in developing medical imaging scanners, pacemakers, and cochlear implants. One can hardly think of any advanced medical tool for diagnosis, analysis, or treatment that does not involve multiple disciplinary areas of ECE. As point-of-care, genetic, preventive, personalized, and remote medicine become the global trends for twenty-first century, medicine, electrical, and computer engineers will play an increasingly important role in developing safe, effective, and inexpensive health-care solutions. Students choosing to focus their graduate study in this area will be prepared for an industrial or academic career in medical devices and systems. They may find positions in the biotechnology and medical instrument industry, pharmaceutical industry, health-care industry, or electronics and communications industry since many electronic and communication companies are pursuing businesses in medical electronics, telemedicine, cloud computing for medicine, wireless health care, and bioinformatics. Students with advanced degrees may also find academic and research positions in universities, research institutes, government laboratories, and international institutions.

Machine Learning and Data Science: This program prepares students for research, technical, and leadership roles in the rapidly growing field of data science. Spanning the spectrum from fundamental theory to practical applications, students first gain a strong mathematical foundation in probability, statistics, linear algebra, and convex optimization. Building on this groundwork they develop a solid understanding of the algorithmic aspects of statistical-, machine-, and deep-learning, and learn how to implement them in Python, and using scalable and resource-efficient network and processing architectures. These skills are then utilized for hands-on experience in several engineering and scientific application areas including computer vision, robotics, computational biology, neurosciences, image and video processing, social networks, embedded systems, and oceanography. Charmaine Samahi, 12/8/2017 3:21 PM Formatted: No bullets or numbering Research Facilities Most of the research laboratories of the department are associated with individual faculty members or small informal groups of faculty. Larger instruments and facilities, such as those for electron microscopy and e-beam lithography are operated jointly. In addition the department operates several research centers and participates in various university-wide organized research units. The department-operated research centers are the Center for Wireless Communications which is a universityindustry partnership; the Institute for Neural Computation, and the Center for Information Theory and Application in conjunction with the Qualcomm Institute. Department research is also associated with the Center for Astronomy and Space Science, the Center for Magnetic Recording Research, the California Space Institute, the Institute for Nonlinear Science, and the Qualcomm Institute ( Departmental researchers also use various national and international laboratories, such as the National Nanofabrication Facility, the National Radio Astronomy Laboratory, and the Center for Networked Systems (CSE). The department emphasizes computational capability and maintains numerous computer laboratories for instruction and research. One of the NSF national supercomputer centers is located on the campus. This is particularly useful for those whose work requires high data bandwidths.

158 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO UCSD BERKELEY DAVIS IRVINE LOS ANGELES MERCED RIVERSIDE SAN DIEGO SAN FRANCISCO SANTA BARBARA SANTA CRUZ DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, 0404 FAX: (858) GILMAN DRIVE LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA January 8, 2018 To: Graduate Council RE: proposal to add the major field of Machine Learning and Data Science to MS and PhD degree programs in ECE This note is to express, on behalf of the CSE department, our support of this new program in ECE. I apologize for the lateness of this note, and it should not be construed as a lack of support. There are two possible concerns about this new program, from our perspective, so I want to acknowledge that we have considered those before voicing our support. The first concern is the overlap with our own program. The CSE department has a long, well-recognized history of excellence in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. We do not offer major fields as part of our degree program, but obviously we have graduated many PhD and MS students in these fields, and in fact we do have an MS concentration in this area. However, we cannot deny that ECE has also built up strong faculty expertise in the area of Machine Learning, as well. Moreover, the demand placed on our graduate machine learning classes by students outside of our major is quite heavy, and we would welcome the sharing of that load. The second concern is the overlap with graduate programs that will grow out of the Data Science undergraduate program and/or the Halicioglu Data Science Institute. On this matter, I suppose I am also speaking as the interim director of the Data Science undergraduate program. The concern here is that when those programs exist, that it be clear to prospective graduate students where they should apply. Several things come into play. First, I expect this will be a popular course of study for many graduate students, so some sharing of the load will be good. Second, I think there will be sufficient distinction between a Data Science major and a ML and DS field within a major that will help students choose between possible paths. Third, Data Science is by its very nature is inherently multidisciplinary, and I suspect we will end up seeing a number of disciplinespecific data science programs in various departments that isn t exactly what this is, but I do not want to set a precedent for trying to claim sole ownership of the term Data Science ; I think there will be more gained with an inclusive approach to Data Science across campus.

159 I write these things, not with the intention of introducing objections through the back door, but to assure the council that we have considered these issues, and still choose to support the ECE proposal. I believe it will be an excellent and popular program, backed by a very strong group of faculty already in place. Sincerely, Dean Tullsen Chair, CSE Interim director, Data Science undergraduate program

160 March 13, 2018 To: UC San Diego Graduate Council Subject: ECE Department Response to Council s Questions Regarding Proposal to Add New Major Field of Study in Machine Learning and Data Science Dear Graduate Council, Thank you very much for your thorough and helpful review of our proposal to establish a new major field of study in Machine Learning and Data Science. Following are our responses to your questions and recommendations. We would first like to clarify the limited scope of our proposal. We are not proposing a new Masters Program in Data Science. Our students will continue to receive their degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering. We ask only to augment our department s twelve current focus areas, listed on page 4 of our original proposal, with a thirteenth area. Due to the diverse topics covered by the Electrical and Computer Engineering discipline, our graduate students select a focus areas that determines their curriculum. Many of our students are interested in machine learning and data science, and none of the current 12 area curricula fits their needs. Our proposal is to add a 13th focus area, with some additional courses to better suit the needs of our students in this important domain. Your letter also makes two specific requests. First, regarding overlap with offerings in other areas of campus, such as Mathematics and departments in the Social Sciences, we contacted Prof. Lei Ni, chair of the Mathematics Department and met with him along with Professors Peter Ebenfelt (associate dean, division of physical sciences) and Patrick Fitzsimmons (Mathematics vice chair). At the meeting, the Mathematics faculty expressed strong support for our new focus area. Prof. Ni s letter, pledging the Math Department s full support is attached. The Math Department also suggested several of their courses that our students could take. We added these courses (Math 245 ABC, Math 282AB and Math 289C) as optional courses in our proposed curriculum, and will highlight them as recommended Technical Electives. We also went over the graduate courses offered by departments in the Social Sciences. The closest department appears to be Cognitive Science. We met with Cognitive Science Department Chair Marta Kutas who too expressed strong support to our program. In her

161 attached support letter, Prof. Kutas writes It is very timely and will meet a clear need. I discussed the curriculum with the relevant faculty in my department and they were enthusiastic, especially with regard to applied machine learning courses. The Cognitive Science Department also suggested two of their courses that our students could take, COGS 260 and COGS 289. We added both to the list of recommended Technical Electives in our proposed curriculum. These letters, along with the two original support letters, from CSE department chair Dean Tullsen, and from Jeff Elman and Rajesh Gupta, heads of the new Halicioglu Data Science Institute, show that our program is strongly supported by our most closely related sister departments and the campus data science community. The second important point you mention concerns the required upper-division undergraduate course, ECE 143, in our proposed curriculum. We included this course because Python and data-analysis programming are typically not offered by ECE departments. We thought of this course as an equalizer for incoming students, ensuring that students have a strong foundation in the field. We are open to the possibility of modifying this requirement. For example, we could consider cross-listing the course as both an undergraduate and a graduate course, and running it at two levels to make sure the needs of all our students are met. Please see the attached list of Revised Course Requirements that addresses your concerns. Thank you for your consideration.
