Course Description

"Concurrent Programming in Java" is an intermediate-level course offered by Rice University that will teach you how to write efficient and reliable software using concurrent programming techniques in Java. This course is ideal for those with a background in computer programming and a strong understanding of algorithms and data structures. Through a combination of lectures, hands-on exercises, and real-world examples, you will learn how to design and implement concurrent programs using Java's built-in concurrency features such as threads, locks, and synchronization. You will also explore advanced topics such as deadlock prevention, thread safety, and parallel computing. This course is designed to help you develop a strong foundation in theoretical computer science and computational thinking, which are essential for writing efficient and scalable software. It will also provide you with practical skills in software engineering, as you work on projects that require you to apply your knowledge to real-world problems. By the end of this course, you will have the skills to design and implement concurrent programs using Java, and you will be able
