Advanced Functional Programming in Haskell
Typed functional programming languages allow for the rapid development of robust programmes. This course explores some of the more advanced language features of Haskell, a state-of-the-art functional programming language, together with some of its theoretical background. The course aims to teach not only the more advanced Haskell features, such as GADTs or type families, but also the underlying theory. Besides the lectures, there are numerous…
Introduction to Complex Systems
Our world has an abundance of so-called complex systems. These are typically large collections of connected elements that influence each other. In this course, we combine examples across physics, the life sciences, socio-economic sciences and humanities with an introduction to basic mathematical tools to learn a complex systems way of thinking. The main aim is to show students how complex systems science is applied by Utrecht University…
The Summer School on Geometry is a two-week programme featuring ten one-day mini-courses on various topics within Geometry. This is understood in a broad sense: the courses will touch on algebraic geometry, differential geometry, and algebraic topology, and will highlight interactions with fields like number theory, group theory and mathematical physics. The School is aimed at students that have completed at least two years of undergraduate…
Neural Circuit Development and Plasticity
Our summerschool is aimed at advanced master students and starting PhD students with the goal to teach them on recent advances in neural circuit development and plasticity from an interdisciplinary perspective. This will be achieved in three ways: first, lectures on basic neurobiological principles by the organisers, second, a series of lectures by renowned international speakers and third, participants work on assignments that require extensive…
Pharmacoepidemiology and Drug Safety
The course will provide insight in study design and analysis in pharmacoepidemiologic and drug safety research. Methodological issues are presented in the context of decision making on medicines. The course takes a multi-stakeholder perspective and applies educational approaches to facilitate interaction between these stakeholders among the participants. It is an intensive programme which covers many relevant topics concerning…
The Institute for Theoretical Physics in Utrecht ranks among the leading institutions in the world in the field of theoretical physics. The target audience of this one-week course are advanced bachelor students in the field of (theoretical) physics, especially those who are preparing to start a Theoretical Physics master programme or who are considering to do so in the near future.
Pharmaceutical Policy Analysis
The aim of this course is to give students insight into current developments in pharmaceutical policy making as well to give a better understanding of the methods available for analysing the effects of policy interventions.
Game Design and Development
The Game Design and Development summer school offers interactive hands-on game design workshops, theoretical game design analysis classes and programming sessions. Practical aspects of the design of games, like levels, characters, art, engines, etc. will be discussed and experienced. The design of new and existing games will be systematically analysed. Programming sessions treat the basics of programming and common elements of game development,…
Mathematics and Science (STEM) Education
The focus of the STEM Education summer school is bringing participants up to date in research and teaching practices in the field of the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), and refreshing and deepening the knowledge of meaningful and relevant educational practices. Topics will include inquiry-based learning and interdisciplinarity, cultural diversity and inclusion, connections to sustainable development goals (SDGs…
