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.

This 6-day course will familiarize participants with Machine Learning and Data Mining algorithms using the Python programming language. You will learn to recognize the correct machine learning approach for a given problem; furthermore, participants will learn how to implement several different algorithms. Finally, towards the end of the course, we will introduce more advanced machine learning topics and methodologies for combining several approaches to solve specialized problems. The lab classes will use the Python programming language and public data sets. The solutions to the exercises can easily be transferred to other programming languages such as R or Octave. -
