About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Each course includes integrated lab exercises using Visual Studio Code or Jupyter notebooks that give you an opportunity to practice the Python, Bash and SQL skills with real-world applications covered in each course. For each data engineering solution that you explore, you are also encouraged to create a demo video and GitHub repository of code that can be showcased in your digital portfolio for employers. By the end of this Specialization, you will have the foundational skills necessary to begin tackling more complex data engineering solutions.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
