As part of the Engineering Summer Academy at Penn (ESAP), I am offering a course called Engineering Complex Networks to teach K-12 students mathematical and computational tools for the analysis of complex networked systems, such as the Internet, the electric grid, Twitter, or Facebook. This course provides a unique opportunity for high-school students to experience college-level STEM coursework. The Academy’s intensive three-week programs combine sophisticated theory with hands-on practical experience in cutting edge technologies.

Brief course description: Networks are ubiquitous in our modern society, playing an increasingly larger role in every day life. Network Science and Engineering is a new discipline that investigates the structure of large complex networks and their behavior and properties, and then designing technologies that control and manipulate their behaviors to bring about greater benefits to society.
