OVERVIEW

  • Computational science is considered the “third branch” of science. It combines experimental and theoretical.
  • Combines modeling and programming to test hypotheses (computer simulation) and is commonly performed prior to actual lab experiments.
  • A student can combine the program with many areas, such as:
    • Computer Science
    • Physics
    • Math
    • Sociology
    • Psychology
  • The program is a great preparation for graduate school. Students wanting to work in this field need to plan to attend graduate school.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon completion of the major, a student will have:

  • A strong understanding of the three broad areas that comprise computational science:
    • Data processing and analysis
    • Algorithmic design, analysis and implementation
    • Mathematical modeling and analysis
  • The ability to work independently to effectively describe a problem within a computational science framework, and create and implement a plan to solve the problem.
  • An understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of computational science, and being able to solve, computationally, problems in a chosen related major/minor discipline.
  • An understanding and appreciation of the historical development of computation and the role of computational science in modern applications within data-dependent disciplines.

CAREER OUTCOMES

  • Computational modeling
  • Research scientist
  • Bioinformatics
  • Engineering
  • Financial industry
