Course leader

European Organization for Nuclear Research

Target group

Our target audience is primarily final year BSc students and MSc students in the field of Computer Science or related, who want to know more about the latest technologies and industry trends in IT. We also have some spots reserved for recent graduates.

Course aim

At CERN, we believe that scientific curiosity is an essential part of being human and we wish to share the excitement and enthusiasm of discovery with as wide a public as possible. CERN shows what people can achieve when they come together for a common purpose. The basic technology of the LHC was impossible when the project was conceived, yet today it runs routinely. Such grand challenges are just a normal part of life at CERN, and we want to bring all our expertise and share it with the community.

Credits info

At the end of the course, a certificate (with indicated workload in ECTS) will be given to the students who successfully attended the sessions.

Depending on the specific course programme at their own university, the students obtaining the certificate may also obtain some ECTS credits, awarded by their respective university. Interested students should submit the proposal to their course coordinator.
