The Department of Scientific Computing (SC) is the focal point of computational science activities at FSU.

Computational science involves the invention, implementation, testing, and application of algorithms and software used to solve large-scale scientific and engineering problems. We provide a venue for innovative research and education in scientific computing. Our faculty come from a wide variety of traditional mathematical and scientific disciplines who are primarily interested in developing knowledge and tools for computational science and applying those tools for the solution of problems in a variety of applications.
