Engineering for Professionals to offer Web development courses via Coursera

September 4, 2015

Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, the division of the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering that administers online and part-time graduate programs, is launching a new series of online courses in Web development through Coursera, the world’s largest open online education provider.

The five-course series, along with its associated capstone project, is titled Ruby on Rails Web Development and will be available to anyone with Internet access. Categorized as a specialization by Coursera, the course series begins Sept. 15 and culminates in the final capstone project in which students gain hands-on experience in how to develop and build their own Web applications using Ruby on Rails, SQL, NoSQL, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery.

Instructors from Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals, who are practicing engineers and developers, helped create and will teach the courses and the capstone project.
