University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh is proud to house Europe’s largest Informatics research centre, and is currently ranked 5th in the UK and 26th in the world for Computer Science (QS 2021). Computer Science (Informatics) is the study of information, computation and communication in artificial intelligence systems (e.g. computers) and in natural systems (e.g. brains, genes, living cells). You will work with world-leading academics and current students on a variety of topics from theoretical to strong application in lectures, tutorials, and practical group project work. Previous summer school topics include cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, software engineering and development, bioinformatics, robotics, and alien language translation. You may even get to build your own working robot!
Engineering at The University of Edinburgh has a long and distinguished history, and a vibrant and successful present. Balancing technical depth with practical learning, students explore various specialities including chemical, civil & environmental, electronic & electrical, mechanical and general engineering courses. You will work with our renowned team of academics and current students on both theoretical and practical work in lectures, tutorials, exciting group projects, and practical lab work. Previous summer school topics include bridge building, laser technologies, drones and artificial intelligence, electronic circuits, biomedical engineering, and robotics.
You will also have the opportunity to try out lots of other subjects at the subject taster sessions, which reflects the flexibility of the Scottish higher education system.
