C Programming with Linux

  • Duration: 49 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

In this C Programming with Linux Professional Certificate program of seven short courses, you will learn how to write, read and debug computer programs in the C programming language while also becoming familiar with the Linux operating system.

Beginners, even those without any programming experience, will be able to immediately start coding in C through new coding tools within the web browser. No need to install anything!

Why learn C and not another programming language? Did you know that smartphones, your car’s navigation system, robots, drones, trains, and almost all electronic devices have some C-code running under the hood? C is used in any circumstance where speed and flexibility are important, such as in embedded systems or high-performance computing.

C is a foundational programming language taught at engineering schools around the world, and represents one of the building blocks of modern computer information technology. Invented in the 1970’s. It is still one of the most stable and popular programming languages in the world.

Along with the C programming language comes Linux, an essential operating system used by most computer scientists and developers. Linux powers almost all supercomputers and most of the servers worldwide as well as all android devices and most internet of things devices. This Professional Certificate Program will introduce the Linux command line and Linux tools for C programmers; both of which are must-have skills in today’s tech industries.

You will practice through guided exercises and short coding demonstrations, as well as more elaborate assignments to move you along the path to becoming a skilled C programmer and help you pursue a career in computer engineering.

Computer Science Essentials for Software Development

  • Duration: 16 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

Gain the systematic knowledge required to be a software developer.

In this professional certificate program, you will learn essential computer science concepts for software development ranging from the fundamentals of object-oriented programming to using efficient algorithms to design high-quality software.

This program begins with the basic concepts of Java, one of the industry’s most commonly used programming languages, and progresses into best practices in modern software development to developing efficient algorithms using sophisticated data structures for complex computational tasks. Finally, you will develop interactive and data-driven web apps using JavaScript.

This program will give you a thorough understanding of core principles of professional software development.


Please note on June 30, 2020, this program will be retiring and no longer available on edX. If you are interested in earning the Professional Certificate you must be complete the program by June 30, 2020, in order to earn the certificate.

Data Analysis: Essential Skills teaches core analytics principles, including how to manipulate and query large data sets. Students will work with T-SQL and use pivot tables for data visualization.

This program consists of three highly focused courses that you can take at your own pace.

Our approach combines self-directed online learning with hands-on labs, using the latest tools so you can hit the ground running. By enrolling in a shorter program, you can more quickly gain a standalone Professional Certificate and the valuable analytics skills that employers are looking for

Data Science

  • Duration: 52 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

The demand for skilled data science practitioners in industry, academia, and government is rapidly growing. The Harvard Data Science program prepares you with the necessary knowledge base and useful skills to tackle real-world data analysis challenges. The program covers concepts such as probability, inference, regression, and machine learning and helps you develop an essential skill set that includes R programming, data wrangling with dplyr, data visualization with ggplot2, file organization with Unix/Linux, version control with git and GitHub, and reproducible document preparation with RStudio.
In each course, the instructors use motivating case studies, ask specific questions, and help you learn by answering these through data analysis. Case studies include: Trends in World Health and Economics, US Crime Rates, The Financial Crisis of 2007-2008, Election Forecasting, Building a Baseball Team (inspired by Moneyball), and Movie Recommendation Systems.
Throughout the program, you will be using the R software environment. You will learn R, statistical concepts, and data analysis techniques simultaneously as you can better retain R knowledge when you learn how to solve a specific problem.

Introduction to Java Programming

  • Duration: 15 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

Programming knowledge is not only useful for programming today’s devices such as computers and smartphones, it also opens doors to the valuable skill of computational thinking, i.e. the application of computing techniques to everyday processes.
In this professional certificate program, you will learn how to write code in Java, understand the basics of Object Oriented Programming (OOP), and how to use software engineering techniques.
The program will begin with introducing fundamental programming concepts, such as, functional abstraction, OOP paradigm and APIs. Then, we will focus on how to write “good” programs, where “good” is to be understood from several perspectives: correctness, efficiency, software engineering techniques, and ethics. Lastly, you will learn about fundamental data structures, such as sequences and algorithms for them, such as searching and sorting.

Introduction to Python Programming

  • Duration: 20 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

“Introduction to Python Programming” is a series of courses built from Georgia Tech’s online for-credit version of CS1301: Introduction to Computing. The series is designed to take you from no computer science background whatsoever to proficiency in the basics of computing and programming, specifically in the popular programming language Python. Rated as one of the most in-demand and beginner-friendly programming languages, a background in Python will give you a solid foundation for further studies in computer science.
The course material has been used at Georgia Tech for its for-credit CS1301 class for over a year. Over 400 students on campus have completed this version of the course, and our analysis shows that they exit the course with the same learning outcomes as students taking the traditional on-campus version. This Professional Certificate uses the same instructional material and assessments as this on-campus class, giving you a Georgia Tech-caliber introduction into the field of computing.
This Professional Certificate follows a unique design, separately covering the general, fundamental principles of computer science—which are applicable to any programming language—and then rapidly transitioning into implementing those principles in Python. Short videos (2-3 minutes each) are rapidly interleaved with live programming problems and multiple choice questions to give you constant feedback on your progress and understanding.
