From chemical engineering to the field of machine learning, Dustin lee talks about his exciting journey, and Great Learning playing a pivotal role in it
Whether you’re from a technical background or not, upskilling in the field of AIML can surely help you. Read further to learn more about Lee’s journey from being a chemical engineer to a programmer with the help of Great Learning’s PGP- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Course in his own words.
My name is Dustin Lee, and I’m taking an Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning course with great learning. I graduated and majored in chemical engineering, but I always said that if I didn’t do chemical, I would definitely do programming.
What got me in was being able to meet with the mentor once a week. I liked the networking opportunities, which are much more important than the actual knowledge you obtain from these programs. Yeah, the best thing about this program is the “Mentor Session” and the case studies, which helped us apply everything we learned. My mentor used to walk us through a case study, which was extremely helpful to me.
I definitely want to be an entrepreneur; I want to learn new things and be able to apply them to a business model. I know that everything I learned here will help me in the long run. I am pretty satisfied with the projects I’ve done and also the solution I’ve come up with. I never thought I would learn at a platform like this. As I said, we get to interact with mentors who have been in the industry for a long time.
I would definitely recommend this program as they allow you to work with mentors; it covers everything that you need to know to start your career, and also, this program is for someone who is here to enhance their knowledge.
