Computational Science Course

Are you a college or advanced high school student interested in science, math, and computation? Learn about these topics in exciting and unconventional ways by enrolling in Illinois Tech’s Computational Science course. The course will integrate math and science with computation as a unifying concept.

Using real-world tools such as Mathematica, students will learn how to take an idea or question and find ways to formulate it for a computer. The course consists of hands-on activities and minimal lecturing. At the end of the program, students will acquire better computational thinking, a skill that is critical in an increasingly technological world.

Students who successfully complete the course will receive two credit hours of college credit for the course SCI 111. This course may be applied to the Illinois Tech curriculum as an elective. 

Registration for summer 2020 will open in early January.

All Illinois Tech Pre-College programs are open to students with a residential address in the U.S.
