King’s is working with some of the most prestigious British and international institutions to bring you King’s Summer Weekends for the intellectually curious. This stimulating and informative bite-size course is designed to fit around your personal and professional commitments.
Tracing your family tree and learning more about your ancestors has become a national passion, but many family historians soon find that internet research gives limited results, with simple lists of names and dates often being all that is available.
This course is for everyone who wants to expand their research into their family tree. It combines instruction on practical researching techniques with academic insight into how key historic events shape stories across generations. It is designed to help participants better read the information they discover, expand their investigation beyond the internet to include historical archives and guide them in their interpretation of details such as professions and social status to make their own journeys into their family’s history as rewarding and revealing as possible.
The registration deadline is 20 July 2018. For more information about the programme, please visit our webpage. Alternatively follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for up to date information about the Summer Programmes Team.
Software engineering is a scientific, systematic approach to the development of computer software, operating systems and programs. This module is designed to be practical to ensure that you do not only understand the concepts and ideas, but are ready to apply them in practice to your own software development efforts. Based on real-world industrial case studies, you will study three aspects of software performance engineering (SPE).
The course will be lectured by Dr Steffen Zschaler, a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, along with Mr Malcom Lees who is an IT Consultant and Performance Engineering Practitioner with over 40 years working with numerous well-known global organisations and brands.
If you’re considering applying to the programme please note that applicants should be current Computer Science students who have completed at least one year of study by the time they attend the Summer School.
