About

Learn To Think Like A Computer Scientist. Master the fundamentals of the design and analysis of algorithms with this Algorithms Specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with Stanford.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Algorithms are the heart of computer science, and the subject has countless practical applications as well as intellectual depth. This Algorithms Specialization offered by Coursera in partnership with Stanford is an introduction to algorithms for learners with at least a little programming experience. 

The specialization is rigorous but emphasizes the big picture and conceptual understanding over low-level implementation and mathematical details. After completing this specialization, you will be well-positioned to ace your technical interviews and speak fluently about algorithms with other programmers and computer scientists.

Applied Learning Project

Learners will practice and master the fundamentals of algorithms through several types of assessments.  Every week, there is a multiple choice quiz to test your understanding of the most important concepts.  There are also weekly programming assignments, where you implement one of the algorithms covered in lecture in a programming language of your choosing.  Each course concludes with a multiple-choice final exam.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Divide and Conquer, Sorting and Searching, and Randomized Algorithms
  • Graph Search, Shortest Paths, and Data Structures
  • Greedy Algorithms, Minimum Spanning Trees, and Dynamic Programming
