Sustainability Summer Programme and Exeter School on Urban Analytics

last modified Jun 11, 2021 11:33 AM

The department of computer science at the University of Exeter is collaborating with other departments from the College of Engineering, Mathematics, and Physical Sciences to give students a chance to explore the wider issue of sustainability in our fields. The Sustainability Summer Programme is split into two weeks, the first week looking at the overarching theme of how STEM can support sustainability, and the second week with the Exeter School on Urban Analytics, focussing on ever-expanding urbanisation and how computational tools can help make it sustainable. The aim of each week is to produce a small project with students from around the world in a chosen area which could include renewable energy engineering, P^3, sustainable product design, and how technology can change the world. These projects are supported by online learning materials and keynote speakers each day.

Any student already in their second year or above within a relevant discipline would be more than welcome to join either or both weeks of the programme. The only requirement is that they have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or equivalent and English language level of C1. In order to join the Exeter School on Urban Analytics, the students should also have previous experience of computer coding and Python. If you believe any student would benefit from the programme and doesn't meet these requirements, please do still encourage them to apply.

The programme will run online from 19th July until 30th July 2021 and costs £200 per week or £350 for the two weeks, though scholarships are also available.
