Algorithmic Design and Techniques

This course is a part of Algorithms and Data Structures, a 9-course MicroMasters series from edX.

In this course, part of the Algorithms and Data Structures MicroMasters program, you will learn basic algorithmic techniques and ideas for computational problems, which arise in practical applications such as sorting and searching, divide and conquer, greedy algorithms and dynamic programming.

This course will cover theories, including:

  • how to sort data and how it helps for searching;
  • how to break a large problem into pieces and solve them recursively;
  • when it makes sense to proceed greedily;
  • how dynamic programming is used in genomic studies.

You will practice solving computational problems, designing new algorithms, and implementing solutions efficiently (so that they run in less than a second).

What people are saying

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

background in mathematics in one review

This course is a lot more work than its authors claim, and if you don't have a solid background in mathematics, you're likely to find those aspects of the syllabus poorly explained.

code they give in one review

But some of the code they give you is slapdash and hard to test, and don't expect anyone to help you when you get stuck.

find those aspects in one review

glossing over others in one review

The instructors have strong accents, are prone to labouring some simple points and glossing over others, and aren't particularly engaging, save for one or two.
