Intro to Computer Science & Programming Skills

This course is aimed at participants with little or no programming experience. It aims to provide an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems. It also aims to help, regardless of their major, to feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals.

Objectives

   This course wants to:

  • It covers the common algorithms, algorithmic paradigms, and data structures used to solve problems. 

  • Introduction to mathematical modeling of computational problems. 

  • Emphasizes the relationship between algorithms and programming, and introduces basic performance measures and analysis techniques for these problems.

  • Map scientific problems into computational frameworks

  • Learning a basic set of "recipes"—algorithms.

  • Learning a language for expressing computations.

  • Learning about the process of writing and debugging a program.

  • Learning about the process of moving from a problem statement to a computational formulation of a method for solving the problem.

 

 

Methodology

 

  Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones

 

Preparation

 Prior to the start of the course, participants will receive a detailed programme outlining the content and structure of the course, as well as recommended reading and viewing material relevant to the course contents. They will also receive practical information about Wolverhampton, including maps, places of interest and accommodation.

 

Cost

   €490/person. For accommodation and other costs please contact us at info@erasmusnet.org

 

Certifications

   We will hand out:

  • Certificate of attendance, which will include title of course, main training content and dates;

  • Europass Mobility certificates issued by your NA and signed by us.
