Computer course to be taught in Melbourne, NSW
Melbourne’s computers are coming for you.
The university is to teach a computer course in Melbourne to students from September.
The course is expected to attract about 60 students, most of whom will be working on a personal computer.
The school will use the school’s Computational Neuroscience and AI Laboratory to provide the training.
The computer course is designed to provide students with the tools to explore and create a new kind of computing experience.
Dr Mark Gidley, the University of Melbourne’s vice president of research, said the computer course was designed to be fun and challenging for students, and would be a good fit for students interested in computer science and the wider technology field.
“This course will give students an introduction to a variety of aspects of computing, from the fundamentals of the scientific computing community to the use of the computer for more practical and ethical purposes,” Dr Gid, who is also an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University at Albany, said.
“We’re looking for a diverse group of students to give the course a go and learn a new set of skills.”
Dr Giddings said he hoped the course would be popular, as students had expressed interest in the subject.
“I think students will really enjoy it, they’ll really enjoy seeing some of the amazing research that goes on at our university and hopefully they’ll get the opportunity to learn about some of our research in the lab,” he said.
