Scientific Programming familiarises students with the basic tools and concepts they need as scientists in order to efficiently design, implement and test computer programs. The topics of the course include fundamentals of procedural and object-oriented programming with languages such as Fortran, C and C++, basic parallelization with MPI and OpenMP, as well as tools for debugging and performance analysis. Besides this the course deals with tools for modern software development like automatic builds, debuggers, version control and integrated development environments.
