Academic Requeriments

Applicants are normally required to have completed a four-year baccalaureate degree, or its
academic equivalent, from an academic institution recognized by the University of Alberta.

An admission grade point average of 3 on most 4-point grading systems or B on most letter
grading systems, based on your most recent two years of full time study (or equivalent) is

International Application Documents

We recommend you compile all supporting documents before starting your application.

You will need to scan and save all your supporting documents (except reference letters) as a
PDF file* and then upload them directly to the online application portal. You must upload
your documents on or before the application submission deadline for the program to which
you are applying.

Supporting documents may include the following:

Academic documents (transcripts, degree certificates, marksheets)

o Read the Requirements for Acceptance of Uploaded


o Read the Graduate Program Manual, Section 5.7

English Language Proficiency scores such as IELTS, Pearson, TOEFL, etc. (if

Additional departmental requirements such as:

o CV, statement of intent, and writing samples

o GRE, GMAT, or other test scores.

o Reference letters (Supply names and email addresses of your
references in the online application.)

conventions click here.

Note: All documents submitted to the University of Alberta become the property of the
University, and will not be released or copied except for purposes internal to the University of
Alberta. Documents may not be returned to the applicant.

Machine Learning
The field of machine learning provides tools and technologies for finding significant
patterns in data, such as the correlations between the results of clinical tests and
treatment success. It is most appropriate in information processing situations where
training data (such as a database of case studies) is available and it is difficult (or not
cost effective) to "engineer in" the solution.

Machine learning is a proven technology that has had significant impact on both
industry and science. There are numerous successful applications of machine learning
related to health information, the oil industry, gene identification and chemical
process control, to name a few.

This group has close ties to the areas of many related areas, including bioinformatics,
database and data mining, and vision and robotics. Graduate students may be
interested in a graduate specialization in Statistical Machine Learning (a joint
program with Mathematics and Statistical Sciences).

Advanced Man-Machine Interfaces

Research in Advanced Man-Machine Interfaces (AMMI) is focused on

investigating scientific and medical visualization (e.g. visualization and
simulation of simple organisms, space weather prediction, CT and MRI
visualization fro neurosurgical planning), computational steering,
computer-assisted surgical training (e.g. motion tracking, haptic
guidance), computer-assisted occupational therapy, telepresence (e.g.
realtime view morphing and foreground-background segmentation),
interpretation of remote-sensed images, spatial navigation, and related

Research in robotics includes collective robotics, multi-robot systems,
visual robot navigation, visual servoing, tele-robotics and mobile
manipulation. In visual robot navigation, we are investigating issues
related to visual simultaneous robot localization and mapping (SLAM).
Research in visual servoing is concerned with robot motion guided by real-
time video tracking. In tele-robotics, we are interested in compensating for
operator visual feedback time delays using incremental 3D capture and
rendering of the remote work area, and we work with Canadian Space
Agency, etc. in a joint project on mobile manipulation.
