%==============================================================================%​

I am looking for universities having tuition fees <=50 lakhs for whole course + living.
As I want to do research in ML/AI/Deep Learning domains, please suggest universities according to that.
Here is a list I have made by going through all the courses offered pertaining to my desired domain:


Georgia Institute of Technology
University of California - Los Angeles
University of California - San Diego
University of Massachusetts - Amherst
University of Wisconsin–Madison
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Texas A & M University
New York University - Courant
Ohio State University
North Carolina State University
Virginia Tech
Purdue University - West Lafayette
Stony Brook University - SUNY
Rutgers University
Arizona State University
University at Buffalo - SUNY
University of Colorado - Boulder
University of Utah

I will apply to 10-12 universities. I want to pursue a job in Machine Learning domain after doing my MS.

I couldn't find good courses in ML/AI in UC-Irvine and UC-SB. Correct me if I am wrong.

Feel free to suggest more universities in Safe, Moderate and Ambitious categories in ML/AI domain.

Thanks a lot!!!!
