GM’s online engineering degree, offered through a partnership with Coursera, is big news for online educators.
Courseras partners with some of the world’s top universities to offer online courses in various fields, including information technology and engineering.
GM, which announced the partnership with the University of Michigan in November, said the online engineering program was designed to bridge the gap between students and their employers.
“It gives us the opportunity to give students an opportunity to learn how to apply their knowledge to solve real problems,” said Tom Reiss, GM’s vice president of online education.
“Students can then leverage this knowledge to become professionals at the end of the day, not just at a degree program.”
The online program has a $2,000 price tag and is offered to students who earn at least a 3.5 GPA in their second semester.
GM’s program is available only to students at the University, and its graduates also need to take at least one online course, according to the university.
The online program is designed for students who want to gain valuable experience in the field of online engineering.
In order to become a GM online engineer, students need to meet the following criteria: graduate from an accredited engineering school with at least two bachelor’s degrees in computer science, information technology, or an equivalent field, and have completed a minimum of six months of online classes.GM said the university is not charging the student tuition, but the online program provides students with the chance to apply the knowledge they have acquired while studying at the university to their jobs.
Courses take around two weeks to complete, and students need a minimum 3.4 GPA.
Coursees are typically offered at a maximum of seven schools, including the University and University of Chicago.
Students also must complete two weeks of online training before applying for a GM license.
The program requires students to take online courses at least three times per year and be at least 18 years old.
The Courserat program, which is open to all graduate and undergraduate students, is a free online program that covers the following topics: programming languages, operating systems, database systems, and other software development skills.
Coursers can also take online classes on topics like Web development, data visualization, and web development management, among other topics.
Coursers must pass an online exam to receive the GM license and earn points that are used to buy GM vehicles, the company said.
In addition to GM, Courserats partners include General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co., Honda Motor Co. and Toyota Motor Corp.
