Coding++ Summer School

The international summer school for students interested in Python for Data processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

20 July – 24 July 2020 or 3 August – 7 August 2020

About the Experience

Learn the fundamentals of Python for Data processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Join students from around the world to learn new skills, build real-world products and get a taste of what it’s like studying at the University of Cambridge.

Programme

During the Coding++ Summer School students will learn the fundamentals of Python for Data processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

This five-day programme provides an accessible but comprehensive introduction to specialised topics in Computer Science such as Artificial Intelligence, Human-Computer Interfaces, Networking and Natural Language processing.

Although no knowledge of Python is assumed, we require students to have previous programming experience and an understanding of how computers work. It is highly recommended to have attended our Coding Summer School to get the best experience.

Our leading curriculum is created in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and useful to include in UCAS applications

How will coding help you ?

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

Computing

Computing

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.
Science

Science

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.
Engineering

Engineering

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.
