Starting GT’s OMSCS and looking at the different specializations... would ML or computational perception and robotics have a better ROI? What does a ML engineer with MS degree make starting out?

    ML engineer has much better ROI considering there are a lot more opportunities in that area.

    Salary depends on the type of company you are aiming it. FAANG? Unicorn startup? No name startup? What kind of a company are you interested in?

      With MS, they start out close to 200k. Also note that salary is region dependent.

      Do you have the prerequisite knowledge required to cover the Ga Tech course?

      I can do basic programming in ruby and I’m a math undergrad. I am going to try and learn java prior to starting the program as I understand it’s in a lot of the courses

    You take ML courses as part of the computational perception and robotics specialization anyway. Plus, you’re just starting out, too early to worry about Payout.

      I’m doing a career change... I’m 26 and made 193 last year so I’m being cognizant of what pays well

      What your current field, and what’s your primary reason for pursuing OMSCS?

      I own a construction business; wanting to get a formal education in CS to have the option of applying for SWE jobs. Undergrad in math

      Great, start taking courses and find your area of interest. SW jobs pay well pretty much in any of the AI/ML specialization. I’m working on it myself, in the hope of changing careers.
