Professionals with SQL, ETL, Enterprise Data Warehousing (EDW), Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Analysis skills are in great demand. This Specialization is designed to provide career relevant knowledge and skills for anyone wanting to pursue a job role in domains such as Data Engineering, Data Management, BI or Data Analytics. The program consists of four online courses. In the first course you learn the basics of SQL and how to query relational databases with this powerful language. Next you learn to use essential Linux commands and create basic shell scripts. You continue your journey by learning to build and automate ETL, ELT and data pipelines using BASH scripts, Apache Airflow and Apache Kafka. In the final course you learn about Data Lakes, Data Marts as well as work with Data Warehouses. You also create interactive reports and dashboards to derive insights from data in your warehouse. Note that this specialization has a significant emphasis on hands-on practice employing real tools used by data professionals. Every course has numerous hands-on labs as well as a course project.

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.
