Top Summer Courses in Computer Science

Many students find summer courses an appealing option if their current education needs a boost. Summer courses offer a way to quicken progress in a field or to develop cross-disciplinary knowledge that can grant more opportunities in the future. The course hours can be put towards a conventional college degree.

A question that some students may ask is: what is a summer course in computer science? This summer course can give students knowledge and skills regarding designing, using, and managing computer systems. Some course material may cover the underlying theories for computer architecture, data structures, and algorithms. Courses may also teach topics related to software engineering, integrated circuits, databases, communication networks, and how computers interface with each other and with humans.

With a summer course in computer science, students can bolster math, science, and engineering skills. Problem-solving, communication, and effectively working with experts in other fields are all skills asked of computer scientists and which can be strengthened through this type of course.

Being shorter in length than fall or winter semester courses, summer courses can be expected to have lighter tuition costs. Researching the prices for courses at various schools is a sound idea, though, since students may see considerable variation from one program to another.

By taking a summer course in computer science, students can take early steps towards career opportunities that include hardware and software designer and data analysis consultant. Students may also find work in artificial intelligence. Almost every other industry has a need for computer scientists, so the knowledge developed here can complement education in other fields.

The flexibility of summer courses makes them suitable for accelerating education towards a career or rounding out knowledge and skills to broaden one’s horizons.

The LAS Summer Academic Program consists of two streams. The first, our “Accelerator” program, provides a clear focus on core school subjects. The second, our “Explorer” program, allows students to discover a range of fascinating topics that support the development of key skills in, particularly alternative subjects. Both programs bring the classroom out into the real world in order to take what the students have learned and apply them to practical situations. Students will select two courses from any of the subjects offered.

Accelerator courses offered – Summer 2018 Mathematics

Mathematics is prevalent in almost every aspect of our lives. Math theories, concepts, and principles are the foundation of the economy, time, measurements, engineering, and even the arts. For this reason, it is clear that students need to have a solid working knowledge of mathematics. This course is designed to strengthen students’ math comprehension. Not only will it expose students to the way math is used in science, technology, and engineering, it will also help students understand statistics, practice reasoning skills, and strengthen their critical thinking....

The call for applications for the 4th Robotics Craftsmanship International Academy (RobotCraft 2019) is now officially open!

RobotCraft is something in-between a summer camp and a collective internship promoted by Ingeniarius; a company devoted to the development of robotic solutions and other hi-tech devices, and the University of Coimbra, through their Robotics Club and the Institute of Systems and Robotics. RobotCraft 2016, 2017 and 2018 received an overall number of 237 participants coming from more than 100 universities spread across more than 20 different countries.

RobotCraft is way more than the typical classroom learning or even laboratory work. The program provides a general overview of the science and art behind robotics, teaching the basis around mechatronics, Arduino low-level programming, Robot Operating System (ROS) high-level design, and artificial intelligence, thus being divided into multiple modules, designated as crafts, carefully prepared to provide a wide range of skills and knowledge in the topic. This 4th edition has been facelifted when compared to the previous versions, with an increased focus in ROS, tackling the current academic and non-academic needs within the world of robotics.... [-]
