This program is intended for students who will make extensive use of large-scale computation, computational methods, or algorithms for advanced computer architectures in their doctoral studies. A firm knowledge of the scientific discipline is essential.
This is not a stand-alone degree; it is a joint degree program. Students must be accepted into the PhD program of a home department. The actual degree name will have “…and Scientific Computing” appended to the the normal title, e.g., “Ph.D. Degree in Aerospace Engineering and Scientific Computing.”
Students may apply to the program after having completed one term, but prior to being promoted to candidacy status.
