Computer science deals information about computation, software, hardware and computer systems. The field consists of theoretical and practical approaches. Both of them contribute to research of the main important issues that computer science investigates: IT, which deals with computer and other systems, its development, artificial intelligence and mathematics, software engineering, systems and network engineering. Graduates can work in fields related to: manufacturing of computer and information systems, maintenance and sales of them as well as software and hardware developers, e-business and telecommunication networks experts.
Graphic Design and Photo editing/manipulation. The PhotoShop CS5 Summer Training Course at the Marbella Design Academy will illustrate how to use Adobe PhotoShop to perform a multitude of different image-processing techniques.
Randomized controlled trials are the gold standard for causal inference. Using an experimental and a control group, double-blind and with a placebo, the effect of an intervention can be neatly determined. But this ideal scenario is not always practicable, or even ethically desirable. What if we want to know how effective sex-offender treatments are? Or whether employment makes people happier? In such cases, special methods have to be used to be able to make causal statements.
Discoveries in the biological sciences increasingly require combining sophisticated technologies, quantitative measurements, and theoretical approaches such as bioinformatics, mathematical modelling and computer simulations.
This course will provide both theoretical background and hands-on experience with business process management (BPM), improvement and innovation. On the one hand it is important for organizations to have grip on their processes, and to continually evaluate and improve their processes in an evolutionary way; Information Technology (IT) can play a supporting role in this. On the other hand innovative IT can play a disruptive role for businesses. In this course both aspects will be illustrated and discussed.
EPITA Summer Sessions is committed to offering high quality, innovative academic courses and interactive education opportunities during the summer. By opening its doors to visiting students, EPITA aims to educate a broad and diverse student population. EPITA's collaborative and interactive model teaches students how to think critically, creatively and globally. Students are active participants in their classes, contributing to a dynamic atmosphere.
R is rapidly becoming the standard platform for data analysis, and is able to perform an enormous range of statistical procedures not available in other statistical programs, such as SPSS. This course offers an elaborate introduction into statistical programming in R. Students learn to operate R, make high quality graphics, fit, assess and interpret a variety of statistical models and do basic statistical programming.
Certificate in Web Site Design - As businesses and organizations are developing and maintaining Web sites at an astonishing rate, more artistic and design expertise is required for those who develop and maintain these sites. The Web site design certificate is intended to meet that presentation need.
The AutoCAD Summer Training Course at the Marbella Design Academy is created for beginners interested in learning 2D Computer Aided Design.
The Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology course provides a justification for materials characterisation, and a framework for considering strategic and tactical issues. It also gives an overview of the most common techniques and methodologies available to determine the nature and composition of nanoparticles (both organic and inorganic), thin films and nanostructures.
Typed functional programming in Haskell allows for the development of compact programs in minimal time and with maximal guarantees about robustness and correctness. The course introduces Haskell as well as its theoretical underpinnings such as typed lambda calculus, and Damas-Milner type inference. There is ample opportunity to put this all in practice during lab sessions.
The ability to create modern, attractively designed page layouts and accurate printed documents is highly valued in design companies and many other types of business today. This course provides both the technical know-how and an understanding of the principles of visual language, to give you the confidence to make design decisions and help you develop a 'good eye' for design.
Learning to understand the process involved in 3D modelling and animation is essential for much of the work that takes place in digital media today. This module aims to introduce students to this exciting area, focusing on the principles and practices involved in digital animation.
