Spécialisation Fundamentals of Computing

Prepare for Advanced Computer Science Courses. Learn how to program and think like a Computer Scientist

À propos de cette Spécialisation

This Specialization covers much of the material that first-year Computer Science students take at Rice University. Students learn sophisticated programming skills in Python from the ground up and apply these skills in building more than 20 fun projects. The Specialization concludes with a Capstone exam that allows the students to demonstrate the range of knowledge that they have acquired in the Specialization.
