Short Courses in Computer Science & IT

Computer science deals information about computation, software, hardware and computer systems. The field consists of theoretical and practical approaches. Both of them contribute to research of the main important issues that computer science investigates: IT, which deals with computer and other systems, its development, artificial intelligence and mathematics, software engineering, systems and network engineering. Graduates can work in fields related to: manufacturing of computer and information systems, maintenance and sales of them as well as software and hardware developers, e-business and telecommunication networks experts.

Competency in Control Valve Sizing, Selection and Maintenance Certificate Competency in Control Valve Sizing, Selection and Maintenance
  • Jun 2016
  • Not specified
  • Not specified

Control valves are the workhorse of our facilities, continually functioning to ensure our systems work as intended. A properly specified, engineered, designed, installed, and maintained control valve can be one of the most profitable investments a facility can have, while a control valve that "does not work well" can be an increased risk of injury (more exposure of maintenance personnel working on the valve), and disruption to your system.

Competency in IEC 61850 Based Substation Automation Certificate Competency in IEC 61850 Based Substation Automation
  • May 2016
  • Not specified
  • 3 months

Older (legacy) substation automation protocols and hardware/software architectures provided basic functionality for power system automation, and were designed to accommodate the technical limitations of the technologies available at the time. However, in recent years there have been vast improvements in technology, especially on the networking side.

From Correlation to Causation: an Introduction to Novel Analysis Methods for Observational Data Short Course From Correlation to Causation: an Introduction to Novel Analysis Methods for Observational Data
  • Jul 2016
  • EEA € 1,000 per module
  • Non-EEA € 1,000 per module
  • 14 days

From Correlation to Causation: an Introduction to Novel Analysis Methods for Observational Data course at VU University Amsterdam details five such methods: propensity score matching, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity design, fixed effects methods and trajectory analysis. Randomized controlled trials are the gold standard for causal inference. Using an experimental and a control group, double-blind and with a placebo, the effect of an intervention can be neatly determined. But this ideal scenario is not always practicable, or even ethically desirable. What if we want to know how effective sex-offender treatments are? Or whether employment makes people happier? In such cases, special methods have to be used to be able to make causal statements.

Business Process Management and IT Certificate Business Process Management and IT
  • Aug 2016
  • EEA € 800 per module
  • Non-EEA € 800 per module
  • 14 days

Business Process Management and IT from Utrecht Summer School will provide both theoretical background and hands-on experience with business process management (BPM), improvement and innovation. On the one hand it is important for organizations to have grip on their processes, and to continually evaluate and improve their processes in an evolutionary way; Information Technology (IT) can play a supporting role in this. On the other hand innovative IT can play a disruptive role for businesses. In this course both aspects will be illustrated and discussed.
