Top free online courses for Computer Science professionals offered on SWAYAM

The government of India took an initiative in the form of SWAYAM that works on three cardinal principles of education – quality, equity, and access – allowing students to take the preferred courses. SWAYAM platform is now offering a free online course for computer science and engineering.

The emerging branch of computer science and engineering is one of the most sought-after courses for students to upgrade their knowledge. They can obtain the courses easily on SWAYAM for a long or short duration.

As per the instructions of UGC, the Universities will find the relevant courses for the transferring of credits to students including the long or short term course.

Here are the 5 top computer science and engineering course that students can opt for via SWAYAM.

1. C Programming and Assembly Language by Professor Janakiraman from IIT Madras
