Build on the software engineering skills you learned in “Java Programming: Solving Problems with Software” by learning new data structures. Use these data structures to build more complex programs that use Java’s object-oriented features. At the end of the course you will write an encryption program and a program to break your encryption algorithm.

After completing this Java Programming: Arrays, Lists, and Structured Data Course offered by Coursera in partnership with Duke University, you will be able to:

  • Read and write data from/to files;
  • Solve problems involving data files;
  • Perform quantitative analyses of data (e.g., finding maximums, minimums, averages); 
  • Store and manipulate data in an array or ArrayList;
  • Combine multiple classes to solve larger problems;
  • Use iterables and collections (including maps) in Java.
