This Specialization covers intermediate topics in software development. You’ll learn object-oriented programming principles that will allow you to use Java to its full potential, and you’ll implement data structures and algorithms for organizing large amounts of data in a way that is both efficient and easy to work with. You’ll also practice critically evaluating your own code, and you’ll build technical communication skills that will help you prepare for job interviews and collaborative work as a software engineer. In the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply your skills to analyze data collected from a real-world (social) network. Google has contributed real-world projects and the involvement of its engineers as guest lecturers to these courses. A small, select group of top learners who complete the Specialization will be offered practice interviews with Google recruiters. Invitation to a practice interview does not guarantee an actual interview or employment.

How long does it take to complete the Java Programming: Object-Oriented Design of Data Structures Specialization?
Time to completion can vary based on your schedule, but most learners are able to complete the Specialization in 4-6 months.
Each course in the Specialization is offered on a regular schedule, with sessions starting about once per month. If you don't complete a course on the first try, you can easily transfer to the next session, and your completed work and grades will carry over.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
We recommend taking the courses in the order presented, as each subsequent course will build on material from previous courses.
Will I earn university credit for completing the Java Programming: Object-Oriented Design of Data Structures Specialization?
Coursera courses and certificates don't carry university credit, though some universities may choose to accept Specialization Certificates for credit. Check with your institution to learn more.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Java Programming: Object-Oriented Design of Data Structures Specialization?
You’ll be able to implement a medium- to large-scale software program in Java using proper object-oriented design and modularization, as well as proper documentation. Specifically, you’ll be able to select or develop the appropriate data structures and algorithms for a given problem or task, and analyze their efficiency; write unit tests to ensure the correctness of computer programs; and communicate technical information clearly and confidently in both oral and written form.
