University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh is proud to house Europe’s largest Informatics research centre, and is currently ranked 24th in the world for Computer Science (5th in UK) (Times H.E. 2020). 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). Throughout the digital summer school, you will work with world-leading academics and current students on a variety of topics from theoretical to strong application, in computer science, artificial intelligence, software engineering, cognitive science and informatics. You will deepen your understanding of the subject and develop new skills by taking part in interactive online classes, independent study and practical group project work. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
Engineering is all around us, making up much of what we take for granted. Edinburgh offers Chemical, Civil & Environmental, Electronic & Electrical, Mechanical, and General Engineering courses. Throughout the digital summer school, you will work with our renowned team of academic staff and students on both theoretical and practical work designed to develop your understanding and experience in the field. You will take part in engaging online classroom activities, independent study, and will even work on some practical projects from home. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
