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 we recommend to apply prior to being promoted to candidacy status.
Students in the scientific computing degree program come from many different disciplines. Our current enrollment exemplifies the breadth of departments, schools, and colleges represented by our Ph.D. students.
