Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course will provide basics on programming with the focus on the needs of physicists. Programming is essential in many areas of physics ranging from numerical simulations through data analysis to control of scientific equipment.

It is practically impossible to carry out a career in physics or related fields without the need to ever write or understand computer code. The example language used during the course is Python.

Assessment and permitted materials

The course will be assessed via a written exam involving a programming task. A laptop computer should be taken to the exam.

If the best grade is achieved in the associated PUE, this will increase the exam grade by one. This bonus point only applies to the first two exams after the course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

50% of the total points at the final exam.

Examination topics

The course is to be regarded as one, single and inseparable entity together with the associated exercise class 260103-4. The material discussed in class will be put in practise in the exercises, which is the only way to actually learn programming.

Reading list

Literature will be provided during the course.
