The Udacity Nanodegree Program
Here are some important features that set our Nanodegree programs apart:
- Our Nanodegree programs are built with, and valued by, industry leaders like Google, Facebook, AT&T, Salesforce, GitHub, and more.
- Our hiring and curriculum partnerships are unique in the field, and represent one of the key benefits our students enjoy. Only at Udacity, for example, can aspiring Machine Learning Engineers learn directly from Google’s Deep Learning experts.
- We offer beginner-to-career-track programs in everything from Android and iOS development, and Data Science and Web Development, to Machine Learning and Deep Learning, and Digital Marketing and Business Analytics.
- We offer programs in cutting-edge emerging technologies like Virtual Reality, Self-Driving Cars, and Robotics.
- Our students benefit from an unrivaled project review system that produces in-depth, detailed, expert project review at lightning speeds.
In summary: The nanodegree is worth in several ways:
- The nanodegree teaches example- and project-based. When you are finished with the program, you have built a handful of projects: This 1. gives you confidence that you can actually apply your newly acquired skills in a meaningful way, 2. The projects are blueprints for your own projects later on (if you want to develop a website for a friend, just take one of the projects from the nano-degree course and change it to your liking), 3. These projects look neat in your cv.
Keep in mind, even though a nanodegree is a solid foundation, it is up to you to make something out of it. There is far more to learn about front-end web development.
