Java Programming: Object-Oriented Design of Data Structures Specialization is a online course conducted by the University of California - San Diego. It is a 5 course specialization, available at $59 per course.
About the course
This specialization covers intermediate topics in software development. You'll learn object-oriented programming principles that will allow you to use Java to its full potential, and you'll implement data structures and algorithms for organizing large amounts of data in a way that is both efficient and easy to work with. You'll also practice critically evaluating your own code, and you'll build technical communication skills that will help you prepare for job interviews and collaborative work as a software engineer. In the final Capstone Project, you'll apply your skills to analyze data collected from a real-world (social) network. Google has contributed real-world projects and the involvement of its engineers as guest lecturers to these courses. A small, select group of top learners who complete the Specialization will be offered practice interviews with Google recruiters. Invitation to a practice interview does not guarantee an actual interview or employment.
The courses are as follows:
- Course 1: Object Oriented Programming in Java
- Course 2: Data structures: Measuring and Optimizing Performance
- Course 3: Advanced Data Structures in Java
- Course 4: Mastering the Software Engineering Interview
- Course 5: Capstone: Analyzing (Social) Network Data
