Do you work with data? Do you want to improve your programming skills? Ever wonder how to work with data in Python? Or why people keep telling you to learn R? Want to learn what a database is? How to navigate in a terminal or use GitHub?

Then there’s a summer workshop for you!

Workshop Registration for Evanston campus from June-August is open. See the schedule for links.


Future workshops will be announced via the Northwestern IT Research Computing Services listserv (subscribe).  We unfortunately have not been able to schedule additional workshops in Chicago this summer.


Graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and research staff affiliated with Northwestern University are welcome to attend. You’ll need a NetID to register and a laptop for the workshops.

Undergraduate students are welcome to register for open spots after the initial registration period has passed. Also see alternative options for learning these skills.


Workshops will be held in multiple locations on the Evanston and Chicago campuses.


Workshops in Evanston will be held between June 24th and August 20th. Workshops in Chicago will be held in September; the schedule is still being determined.

Other Options

We’re offering these workshops because they fill a gap for researchers looking to improve their skills. However, there are additional options both during the summer and academic year, including NICO 101, the data science sequence in the statistics department, Data Science Nights, Research Computing Services workshops, an R User Group, and more. See our list of other data science courses and activities for details.
