Program Description:

The mission of the Computer Science Department’s graduate program is to serve as a center for intellectual and educational development that promotes critical and logical thinking, and the mastery of a student-focused Computer Science curriculum. The graduate program strives to prepare students to become lead or supporting researchers in any branch (bioinformatics, atmospheric science, software design, etc) of Computational Science. Given the breadth of disciplines served by scientific computing and the wide range of experience we expect students to bring to the program, the curriculum has been designed such that the student will gain invaluable “practice experience” by experiencing first-hand the needs of practitioners in that particular field. A number of hardware and software computing platforms are available to students. Goal 1: Graduates will be prepared to become experts in the fields of Computational Science. Goal 2: Graduates will be proficient in the use of use of high-performance computing platforms and computing techniques.
