Software for Science

Software is indispensable in contemporary research. But very little attention is given to the development of this software. The result is that most experiments cannot be reproduced, while reproducibility is an important pillar of scientific progress.

In the Software for Science course you will be part of a team of 3-4 students and will work on important scientific experiments such as the Large Hadron Collider (CERN, European Organisation for Nuclear Research) and the Square Kilometre Array (ASTRON, the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy) or on creating software for archaeologists to reconstruct the Via Appia for the Dutch eScience Center.
