How coding will help you

Interested in physics, maths, technology or engineering? The Coding Summer School will teach you valuable programming skills used in all industries.


Want to enter the tech industry? Do you aim to become the next Mark Zuckerberg? Coding will help you leverage technology to prototype, build and scale your ideas. Additionally, computational thinking will help you break down problems and efficiently structure projects.


If you want to explore a career in Physics, coding skills will help you quickly pick up MatLab, a useful application to analyse data and experiment with different algorithms to model and simulate concepts.


To pursue engineering, programming knowledge and understanding is essential to design/develop programs and add new functionality to products. This has a number of exciting industry applications, such as building autonomous systems.
