University of Edinburgh - Welcome Week
  Introduction to Computing in GeoSciences for New Postgraduate Students


The GeoSciences Computing Induction aims to familiarise new postgradate students (taught Masters and research students) with the computer systems you will use during your time in Edinburgh. The course takes place on Wednesday and Thursday of Welcome Week. It is modular, and many students will just have to attend a half-day on either Wednesday morning or afternoon (see timetable below). The purpose of the later sessions will be discussed in the first session to allow you to make decisions as to whether these are required. All lecture and practical materials will be linked below, and sessions recorded for future playback.



Room 2.02 in the Geography Building on Drummond Street (EH8 9XP).
