Udacity, a pioneer in online education, is building "University by Silicon Valley", a new type of online university that teaches the actual programming skills that industry employers need today, delivers credentials endorsed by employers, because they built them, and provides education at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional schools.

With industry giants - Google, AT&T, Facebook, Salesforce, Cloudera, etc. - we offer Nanodegree credentials, designed so professionals can become Web Developers, Data Analysts, or Mobile Developers. Supported by our communities of coaches and students, our students learn programming and data science through a series of online courses and hand-on projects that help them practice and build a convincing portfolio.
