Computing Science

Intended for

High school students with an interest for computing science.

The webclass

In this web class we give an introduction into computing science. We discuss challenges that are important in this digital world: How do I save large files in a compact way? How do I encrypt my data? And how easily is encryption cracked? What can be computed and what not? Can we actually compute everything that is theoretically computable before the last stars in the galaxy fade out? Besides theory and exercises on these topics we show you on a simulated computer what happens inside this machine. You will also write simple programs. Programming experience is not required.

Student Workload and Awarding

You can earn credits comparable to a workload of 10 hours and will receive a certificate if you do the practical assignments sufficiently every week. The fourth week contains a final assignment that will be graded. It is possible to use this course for credits at your school, but you have to arrange this with your school yourself. You can for example ask your teacher to join this web class, so he/she can keep up with your accomplishments.

Studying Computing Science

This course gives a good impression of the diversity of the degree programme of Computing Science. These web classes offer a short introduction to the actual Computing Science education. We will introduce you to the varying subjects which Cumpting Science students deal with during their study time.
