Join HSE's English-taught Courses on Coursera

© Higher School of Economics

In July, HSE is launching two English-taught courses on Coursera. Enrollement for the courses is still open. The full list of online courses offered by HSE is available on HSE MOOCs page.

Addressing Large Hadron Collider Challenges by Machine Learning

The course is part of the Advanced Machine Learning specialization. It is intended for those who have already studied the methods of machine learning and would like to apply them to practical research problems, in particular, in high energy physics. Many of the experiments are carried out on a Large Hadron Collider and require processing of huge amounts of information. The course will help participants to understand how to do it. Background in physics is not required.

The course starts July 9 and applications are open till July 14 (the course is relaunched every two weeks). The course is taught in English.

Mathematics for Economists

The course is intended for bachelor’s and first-year master’s students who would like to gain skills in applying mathematical knowledge and expertise to solving economic problems. Participants will also learn how to present proofs. The authors of the course believe that mathematical concepts are not only beautiful theories in books; they can help to better understand the real life situations.

The course starts July 16. The course is taught in English.
