Accelerated Computer Science Fundamentals Specialization
Data Structures and Algorithms in C++. Learn fundamentals of computer science while implementing efficient data structures in C++.
What you will learn
Design and implement an object-oriented program in the C++ language, including defining classes that encapsulate data structures and algorithms.
Select and implement appropriate data structures that best utilize resources to solve a computational problem.
Analyze the running time and space needs of an algorithm, asymptotically to ensure it is appropriate at scale, including for big data.
Prepare for advanced courses in CS with the foundational knowledge of object data structures needed to implement and call advanced library functions.
Skills you will gain
About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Students will solve weekly “challenge problems” by implementing fragments of C++ code in a web-based interface. Each course also features two longer-format coding projects where students will follow instructions to complete a C++ program that performs tasks such as editing images, efficiently manipulating data structures, or solving a graph search problem.
How the Specialization Works
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.
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.
There are 3 Courses in this Specialization
Object-Oriented Data Structures in C++
Ordered Data Structures
Unordered Data Structures
