Python Programming Certificate

In eCornell Certificate Programs  

Python is one of today’s most popular and fast-growing programming languages, with applications in data science, software development, machine learning, and AI.

This certificate program follows a rigorous, user-centric approach to software engineering with Python. Its goal is not simply to teach you how to use Python, but rather to understand the core principles of Python and develop the ability to become a proficient Python programmer and software developer. You will design, code, test, visualize, analyze, and debug Python functions and programs. You will also be provided a robust set of tools to assist you in your coursework.

Additionally, the program includes two project-based courses that provide the opportunity to take the concepts you learn in programming and apply them by designing Python-based solutions to real-world business problems.

Ultimately, you’ll come away with not only the technical skills to grow in the field of computer science but the problem-solving ability and creativity that companies are increasingly looking for.

You will be most successful in this program if you are comfortable with pre-calculus, basic algebra, trying new things, and troubleshooting with your computer. You will also be expected to download and install Anaconda and Atom in the first course.
