Princeton University’s award-winning online courses and programs are designed and taught by distinguished University faculty. The university has developed Massive Open Online Courses that are available for free on Coursera. This open learning initiative offers online course to anyone who wants to learn but primarily first- and second-year undergraduates interested in engineering or science, along with high school students and professionals with an interest.
Plenty of free resources are available online for students who want to learn a new topic, but these free options don’t generally lead to college credit. The College is offering online courses on Algorithms. This MOOC will start on September 4, 2015.
Brief Details of the Course
Length: 6 week
Effort: 6 – 12 hours/week
Subject: Earth Science
Institution: Princeton University and Coursera
Certificate Available: Yes
Session: Course session will be September 4, 2015 – October 23, 2015
About The Course
This practical, hands-on course aims to help you and get information about essential aspects that every serious programmer needs to know about algorithms and data structures, with emphasis on applications and scientific performance analysis of Java implementations.
There will be two lectures (60-75 minutes each) each week. The lectures are divided into about 4-6 segments, separated by interactive quiz questions for you to to help you process and understand the material. In addition, there will be a problem set and a programming assignment each week and there will be a final exam.
Why Take This Course
The primary objective of this course is to cover basic iterable data types, sorting, and searching algorithms.
Although the lectures are designed to be self-contained, students wanting to expand their knowledge beyond what we can cover in a 6-week class can find a much more extensive coverage of this topic in our book Algorithms (4th Edition), published by Addison-Wesley Professional.
