Introduction to Firedrake

We will be hosting an in-person tutorial at Imperial College London for new users to get to grips with Firedrake.

Tutorial contents

The tutorial is primarily aimed at postgraduate students, especially MSc students who expect to use Firedrake in their summer projects. However, non-students are also welcome.

We’ll be working through the Firedrake tutorial notebooks, which you can have a look at if you’d like to understand the scope of the course. We won’t assume you’re familiar with the notebooks in advance of the tutorial.

Attendees will need to bring a laptop. Installing Firedrake (see the download page for details) is optional, as it will be also be possible to join the tutorial using the cloud.

Where and when

The workshop will be held in room G41 of the Royal School of Mines building on Prince Consort Road at Imperial College London. It will run from 1300-1700.


The tutorial is free but we are limited by the size of the room. Please therefore register using the form below.
