Computational Science and Engineering
he School of Engineering and Applied Science offers a Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering. This degree is intended to meet the need for engineers and scientists who are not only well trained in an engineering or scientific discipline, but also in the computational areas that are needed to support these disciplines.
This degree is a 33 to 37-credit hour, thesis-based program. Courses are distributed among the following categories: a computational core (12-16 credit hours), science or engineering courses (12 credit hours), and thesis and research seminar (9 credit hours). Completion of the computational core requires competency in data structures and algorithms, simulation of physical and engineering systems, optimization, high performance computing, and numerical methods.
