Becoming a Self-Driving Car Engineer

Companies ranging from Google to Tesla to NVIDIA are on the hunt for great engineers to build self-driving cars. Learn how to acquire the skills to work in one of the most exciting fields of software engineering!

Speaker: David Silver leads the Self-Driving Car Team at Udacity, which is launching a nine-month program to train engineers to work in the autonomous vehicle industry. Prior to Udacity, David was a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company. Before Ford, David worked in engineering and product roles at Candidate Metrics, mSpot, and AOL. He has an MBA from Stanford University, and a BSE in computer science from Princeton University.


We're planning a whole cycle on self-driving cars, including through exploration of Deep Learning, mathematically and via open-source, that will lead to the first open-source conference on in 2017. Join the list there to learn more.
