Are co-sci classes necessary to succeed in AI/machine learning? Neuroscience student looking to pivot.

I’m an BS/MS in neuroscience candidate in my last year, with most of my research consisting of neural simulations and computational work. I am interested in applying to jobs in the field of A.I/ machine learning after graduation but did not complete many computer science courses while at Brandeis. How much is coursework in CS valued in the industry as compared to the experience I’ve already had in neuroscience, and what are some things I could do in the next year to strengthen my resume?
