The company is offering its computer science curriculum — and kicking in some funds — to 10 institutions this academic year, with more to follow. A pilot program for computer science and data science courses is underway this fall at eight institutions, which have begun offering at least one of two introductory computer science and data science courses geared toward students with little to no experience in the disciplines. The program will expand next year as three of the eight institutions, as well as two others, offer an intensive 10-week machine learning seminar, with enrollment open to students across the country. This initiative is separate from Google’s new online certificate program in entry-level IT, which more than 25 community colleges and Northeastern University are offering for credit.
