Course level: Intermediate
About this course
The course starts with a broad overview of how software fits into the climate tech landscape. You’ll then take deep dives into three tech stacks that are used in climate tech, their applications across climate industries, case studies, and job opportunities in each space. The course will culminate in the creation of a portfolio project to highlight the new skills you have learned.
You’ll walk away with a deeper knowledge of how software fits into climate industries, a broad understanding of job opportunities in climate tech for software engineers, a portfolio project to help you land a climate job, and a network of like-minded people.
Prior software engineering experience in python is recommended but not required. Software engineering skills are pivotal in devising solutions to climate change challenges.
