Coding

From ordering food in a restaurant to parking your car, computers, the internet and artificial intelligence are having an increasing impact on our lives. On our coding course, you can find out more about how engineers develop software to help us all in our day-to-day lives, and leave the Oxbridge International Summer School knowing enough to be able to code your own sophisticated website from scratch

 

Who will I be taught by?

Hi - I'm Daniel! After graduating in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2011, I worked for 4 years as a Software Engineer at HP. Here I specialised in natural language processing.

I've tutored on the Oxbridge International Summer School for two years, and is returning this year to teach on our Engineering and Coding courses.

On my Engineering course, I'll be covering the whole breadth of university Engineering, from semiconductor physics to engine design, and from material selection to complexity. On the Coding course, I'll be looking at the programme Python, and helping students design their own website from scratch. As a bonus, my students will be learning a few tricks to improve their mathematical problem-solving skills.
