Our Story

Udacity began as an experiment in online learning, when Stanford instructors Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig elected to offer their “introduction to Artificial Intelligence” course online to anyone, for free. Over 160,000 students in more than 190 countries enrolled and 23,000 graduated. Thrun found that the top performing Stanford student ranked only number 413. The top 412 students were not from Stanford. The potential to educate at a global scale was awe-inspiring, and Udacity was founded.

Our Nanodegree Programs

Udacity works with industry experts to create project and skills-based online learning programs called Nanodegree programs. Udacity Nanodegree programs provide credentials earned through a series of online courses and projects in an array of subjects from self-driving cars and AI to data science and digital marketing. Udacity collaborates with expert instructors and more than 200 global industry partners including AT&T, Google, Facebook, Mercedes-Benz and NVIDIA to close talent gaps.
