Applied Computing Series @ Mount
Applied Computing series, initially supported and designed by Google, offers intro courses that give students a hands-on knowledge of programming languages and the ability to work with data to drive well-informed decisions. Classroom time is dedicated to hands-on learning, with faculty-supported, collaborative project work.
