In the Algorithmic Design and Techniques Certificate, part of the Algorithms and Data Structures MicroMasters Program from EdX in partnership with University of California, San Diego - UC San DiegoX, you will learn basic algorithmic techniques and ideas for computational problems, which arise in practical applications such as sorting and searching, divide and conquer, greedy algorithms and dynamic programming.
This course will cover theories, including:
You will practice solving computational problems, designing new algorithms, and implementing solutions efficiently (so that they run in less than a second).
