Introduction to Java Programming

Universidad Carlos iii de Madrid via edX Professional Certificate


Programming knowledge is not only useful for programming today’s devices such as computers and smartphones, it also opens doors to the valuable skill of computational thinking, i.e. the application of computing techniques to every-day processes.

In this professional certificate program, you will learn how to write code in Java, understand the basics of OOP and how to use software engineering techniques.

The program will begin with introducing fundamental programming concepts, such as, functional abstraction, OOP paradigm and APIs. Then, we will focus on how to write “good” programs, where “good” is to be understood from several perspectives: correctness, efficiency, software engineering techniques, and ethics. Lastly, you will learn about fundamental data structures, such as sequences and algorithms on them, such as searching and sorting.
