The program is composed of 10 modules. Over the course of 10 weeks, we will cover a wide range of topics at different stages of the software engineering lifecycle. You will practice the key tasks of software engineering, such as gathering requirements, inspecting the existing codebase, and contributing a new feature to an open-source project. You'll also learn to manage non-technical factors to make decisions and mitigate risks for software projects. Throughout the program, you'll find activities and assessments that allow you to both practice key concepts and apply the methods covered in the lectures. There's one graded assignment in each module. You are required to complete 6 out of 10 graded assignments to receive the certificate of completion. You will also complete a capstone project that allows you to contribute to a microblog application.

As you move through the program, remember, you're part of a global cohort from a wide variety of cultural and professional backgrounds.
