Graduate Degrees In Computational Science PDF Print E-mail

The Department of Scientific Computing offers innovative M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in Computational Science. The Ph.D. program allows specialization in the following areas:

  • atmospheric science
  • biochemistry
  • biological science
  • geological science
  • materials science
  • physics

as well as in aspects of

  • computational mathematics and computer science relevant to computational science.

The Master's degree in Computational Science program has a track which meets the criteria for the Sloan Foundation's Professional Science Master's degree, which is geared towards students who want to work in industry or government after completion of a master's degree.

The goal of the Professional Science Master's Program (p.s.m.) is to train students to be technically adept in computational science, to acquire knowledge of an applied science discipline, to manage a project, work in teams, and to effectively communicate ideas and results.

The goal of the Ph.D. degree in Computational Science is to train graduate students to have extensive knowledge in computational science and to allow them to acquire expertise in one or more areas of applied mathematical sciences or engineering. Thus the degree provides the student with breadth as well as depth. Graduates should be able to successfully collaborate with scientists in other disciplines. Ideally, students should learn to develop, use, and analyze new computational procedures that can be utilized in a variety of fields.
