*** Seminars will be organized during both the winter and summer semesters (October to April). We ask all students who wish to participate in this course to contact the teachers before winter semester starts (middle of September) at the latest. Information about seminars will be send to all who have applied. *** Become familiar with basic programming technologies, data structures and algorithms. Learn to write clear and easily maintained computer programs. The course will focus on Fortran 90/95 programming language and its latest generations (Fortran 2003/2018). Generally become familiar with the characteristics and possibilities of other computer languages such as C/C++ and Python, for example, and techniques for interoperation of these languages. Become familiar with the concepts of paralelization (MPI and OpenMP).

Students with basic programming skills (programming in Fortran, C, Matlab, or Python, for example) and general knowledge of programming technologies and algorithms will have an advantage.

However, the course schedule will allow the students to catch up on their missing knowledge by a self-study or consultations.
