Computing for Science (offered in 2019-2020 as CSC198) teaches computational skills for the modern science laboratory. This year, the course focuses on software tools for chemistry labs, however the course is likely of interest to students in any physical or life science who are looking to develop their computational skills.
In 2019-2020, this course will be co-taught by Alán Aspuru-Guzik and Jacqueline Smith.
- This course requires no prior computer programming experience.
- This course is *not* targeted at students who plan to study Computer Science, or who plan to take additional CSC courses.
- The course meetings each week will typically be 1 hour of lecture, followed by 3 hours of guided programming problem solving, including time to work on coursework with the support of your instructors. Students are expected to attend all class meetings.
- Students in the course will need to be able to bring a laptop to class. You will need to be able to install some software on your laptop. If you want to take the course, but cannot get access to a laptop, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
