The University of Virginia Alliance for Computational Science & Engineering (UVACSE), in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Science and NASA, is sponsoring
The NASA-University of Virginia
Intensive Summer School in Computing for Environmental Sciences
What is ISSCENS?
The Intensive Summer School for Computing in Environmental Sciences (ISSCENS) is an exciting opportunity for students interested in working with computational applications for atmospheric, ocean, climate, and other environmental sciences. Students will acquire hands-on computing experience and basic training in software engineering and high-performance computing.
The program is open to graduate students and to undergraduates in their last year. Motivated third-year students who plan to go to graduate school are also encouraged to apply. A total of 20 students will be selected for the Summer School, of which 10 will go on to 8-week internships at NASA centers. No previous programming experience is required as we will teach it starting from the basics, but students should be interested in computing and intend to use it in their future research.
Students selected to attend the Summer School may be foreign nationals, but only US citizens can be NASA interns.
