“When I was in 10th grade, I wanted to study economics and business and become a certified accountant when I grew up. However, deep down, some voice inside told me that I should pursue science in high school. Not much later, I noticed my increasing love for computer science and programming, specifically in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning.⁠

So from economics to general science to now majoring in computer science at one of India’s top engineering colleges, this journey has been amazing and life-changing, and most of the credit goes to Coursera. With online courses in basic programming, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, Coursera helped me broaden my horizons and gain knowledge in the subjects I’m most passionate about.⁠

With high-quality courses on a wide variety of subjects and topics, I think Coursera is the go-to platform for learning something new and for supplementing your current studies.” ⁠- Ramya, @ram_yeahh on Instagram

“I majored in computer science for my undergrad, and while I was in school I made the decision to enroll in the Google IT Professional Certificate program in hopes that it would open up more opportunities for a career after graduation. While interviewing with my current employer I mentioned my certificate through Coursera, and they were excited to hear that I had some background on the material.

There are many skills that I have been able to apply to my new job. As a cloud support technician, I take on many different tasks including, using PowerShell, speaking with customers, and checking on network connections, to name a few. The program taught me the types of questions I should be asking customers.

The Google IT Support Professional Certificate is an amazing program––it’s great for people who are just getting into the field and it’s also great for people already in the field.” - Kaitie Holden, Google IT Support Professional Certificate alum
