Course description and aims

This course teaches the basic skills of programming of the Fortran.
The Fortran is an important programming language in chemistry. Students learn the procedure of the programming, i.e. the production of the source program, compiling the source program and executing the executable file.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to write the source program by Fortran and execute it.


Fortran, Operating system, Fortran compiler

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

First three classes consist of the lecure and practice followed by four classes consisting of only practice. Students are requested to solve two problems with the Fortran program produced by themselves.
