Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Computational Science and Engineering

The Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) program is an interdisciplinary program addressing the body of knowledge, skills, and practices associated with the study of computer-based models of natural phenomena and engineered systems. Students will be required to obtain a breadth of knowledge across a set of core areas, depth of knowledge in a specific computational specialization (e.g., numerical computing), and knowledge to apply computational techniques in a domain of application. Students will be expected to integrate principles from mathematics, computing, science, and engineering to be able to create significant computational artifacts (e.g., software), and to complete independent research that advances the state-of-the-art in the CSE discipline.

The CSE Ph.D. degree program is an interdisciplinary program offered by the College of Computing, the College of Engineering, and the College of Sciences. Once admitted, students follow the CSE program's degree requirements and curriculum.
