    • Build machine learning models using frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras, and scikit-learn
    • Build machine learning pipeline that consists of modular and sequential components to train and build models
    • Apply software engineering best practices in basic code documentation (Readme, docstrings and requirements.txt)
    • Deploy your models in Docker containers
    • Able to provision and use of cloud computing infrastructure such as Microsoft Azure
