This Fundamentals of Computing offered by Coursera in partnership with Rice University covers much of the material that first-year Computer Science students take at Rice University.
Students learn sophisticated programming skills in Python from the ground up and apply these skills in building more than 20 fun projects.
The Specialization concludes with a Capstone exam that allows the students to demonstrate the range of knowledge that they have acquired in the Specialization.
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
