The Computational Science Track is offered through the College of Science

A wide variety of businesses and industries need people with expertise in mathematical modeling. Once a problem has been formulated mathematically, a diverse collection of mathematical and computational techniques can be applied to solve it. Frequently, visualization of computational or experimental results can substantially aid in their interpretation and in the final solution of a problem.

Students in the Computational Science Track will learn:

- mathematical modeling to help translate a scientific or engineering problems into precise mathematical statements
- numerical methods for solving these mathematical problems
- visualization to display computational or experimental results in a way that can substantially aid in their interpretation

The logic developed in mathematical training can empower individuals to become problem-solvers in many different disciplines. In addition to courses in Transferable Skills (9 credits), Advanced Quantitative Skills (9 credits), and an Internship (3 credits), students must take one pair of classes from the core courses and may select their remaining courses from the list of electives, for a total of 15 credits.
