Pre-Semester Boot Camps

Our two-day pre-semester boot camps happen every late-August and mid-January on the Morningside campus, to provide introductory methodological training in common and emerging computational technologies such as Python, R, Matlab, GAP, and Julia, among others. Students will learn programming, plotting, and version control techniques, with hands-on instructor support with utilizing these techniques for their specific research projects.
