About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
The course projects are based on case studies of fictional companies facing manufacturing challenges or opportunities where digital technologies can be implemented as viable solutions. Learners will be asked to take on the role of a technology consultant, evaluate a company's situation, and based on what they have learned about a particular technology topic, present recommendations to the company's leadership for consideration. Given the business emphasis of the courses in the specialization, the project will challenge learners to consider the business value, risks, challenges, planning, and impact on employees when developing their recommendations.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
