Hi Balagopal! Thanks for checking. The Self-Driving Car Program consists of three terms, each lasting three months. Term 1 is all in Python. Term 2 is mostly in C++. Term 3 is mostly in C++.
We recommend students familiarize themselves with C++ before beginning Term 2, but we make an effort to do a gradual ramp into C++ because we know it’s a new language for some students.
Your experience proves that C++ is not required for some all jobs. But our goal is to prepare students for jobs in the autonomous vehicle industry, and our discussions with hiring managers indicate that the language of choice is C++.
Hope to see you in class ;-)
