How the Specialization Works

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Yes! To get started, click the course card that interests you and enroll. You can enroll and complete the course to earn a shareable certificate, or you can audit it to view the course materials for free. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. Visit your learner dashboard to track your progress.

  • This course is completely online, so there’s no need to show up to a classroom in person. You can access your lectures, readings and assignments anytime and anywhere via the web or your mobile device.

  • The standard version of this specialization is 20 weeks in duration. The honors track requires an additional 4 weeks of study.

  • This is a graduate-level specialization that assumes that learners already hold a technical undergraduate degree: a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering or a Bachelor's degree in a closely related engineering discipline plus undergraduate-level competency in the following areas: Math (differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations), Science (calculus-based physics and general chemistry), and Engineering (linear circuits, electronics, and linear systems)

  • The courses are designed to be taken in order, from Course 1 through Course 5. Course 1 gives a broad overview, background concepts, and context for the others; Course 2 is a strong prerequisite for the remaining courses since it describes the mathematical and programming frameworks that will be used; Course 3 includes topics in random variables that are important for Course 4. Course 5 is the only exception, and may be taken any time after completing Course 2.

  • No.

  • After completing the specialization, you will be able to: use laboratory data to create mathematical models of battery cells, and use these models to implement state-of-charge, state-of-health, available power (state-of-function), available energy, and balancing algorithms.
