Specialization

 

A Specialization is a multi-course series (usually three or more courses), culminating in a capstone project or experience. Each course in the Specialization has learning objectives that together make up an overarching goal for the Specialization.

Payment

There is a 10% discount for enrolling in a Specialization as an entire package, but learners can also sign up and pay for an individual course within a Specialization. For some of our Specializations, Coursera offers access to the course materials and active forums for $49 per month.

Details

We recommend taking the courses in their given order, since each successive course often builds on concepts discussed in the course before it. All courses have rolling enrollment dates— which means that they begin again with a new cohort of fellow students every couple of weeks.

Certificate

Our RCEL Certificate is a multi-specialization series, culminating in a Certificate in Engineering Management from Rice University. Each specialization in the Certificate program is comprised of 3 courses, so learners will take 9 total courses to earn their Certificate. 

Payment

There is a 10% discount for enrolling in a Specialization as an entire package, but learners can also sign up and pay for an individual course within a Specialization in the Certificate Program.  

Details

We recommend taking all of the courses within a Specialization in their given order, since each successive course often builds on concepts discussed in the course before it. Learners are welcome to choose the order of the Specializations they complete for the Certificate, however.
