International Semester, Frontiers of Life Science Bachelor Program
The main goal of the course is for students to understand when and how computer programming can and should be used in scientific research. While the primary language we will use is MatLab, the skills covered in this course will be transferrable to other programming languages. Thus, the most important aspects of this class are in the logic and ability to understand how to “talk” to the computer, rather than to master a specific language’s syntax. We will use a combination of presentations, hands-on activities, and projects throughout the course, but the primary focus will be on student’s learning by doing.
