Description

Data Structures and Algorithms Specialization is a rigorous academic program designed to provide students with a deep understanding of core computer science concepts. This specialized program covers a wide range of topics, including data structures, algorithms, and their real-world applications.

The program is structured to help students develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to tackle complex coding challenges. Through a combination of lectures, assignments, and hands-on programming projects, students gain practical experience in designing and implementing efficient algorithms for common problems in computer science.

One of the key benefits of this specialization is its focus on data structures, which are essential for organizing, storing, and retrieving data efficiently. By studying different types of data structures, such as arrays, linked lists, trees, and graphs, students learn how to select the best data structure for

What you’ll learn

  • Play with 50 algorithmic puzzles on your smartphone to develop your algorithmic intuition!  Apply algorithmic techniques (greedy algorithms, binary search, dynamic programming, etc.) and data structures (stacks, queues, trees, graphs, etc.) to solve 100 programming challenges that often appear at interviews at high-tech companies. Get an instant feedback on whether your solution is correct.

  • Apply the newly learned algorithms to solve real-world challenges: navigating in a Big Network  or assembling a genome of a deadly pathogen from millions of short substrings of its DNA.

  • Learn exactly the same material as undergraduate students in “Algorithms 101” at top universities and more! We are excited that students from various parts of the world are now studying our online materials in the Algorithms 101 classes at their universities. Here is a quote from the website of Professor Sauleh EetemadiOpens in a new tab from Iran University of Science and Technology: “After examining syllabus and course material from top universities including StanfordOpens in a new tabPrincetonOpens in a new tab and MITOpens in a new tab we have chosen to follow the Data Structures and Algorithms SpecializationOpens in a new tab from UCSD…due to excellent course material and its practical approach.”

  • If you decide to venture beyond Algorithms 101, try to solve more complex programming challenges (flows in networks, linear programming, streaming algorithms, etc.) and complete an equivalent of a graduate course in algorithms!
