Are you ready to solve tomorrow's problems?

Scientific computation is a rapidly evolving field that becomes more essential every day. You'll learn to construct mathematical models to analyze complex scientific questions — like how a new drug will behave in a human's body — and be on the cutting-edge of advancing technology.

You'll be a critical scientist and team member, using your finely-honed quantitative analysis skills to make a difference in a variety of fields including economics, medicine and biology.
Program Requirements

The minor in scientific computation deals with the processing of large sets of 'messy data'. A must for anyone who plans to attend graduate school.

  • CS 112 Introduction to Computer Science
  • CS 333 Database Management
  • MATH 118 Introductory Statistics
  • MATH 343 Mathematical Modeling

A fifth course to be chosen from:

  • CS 113 GUI and Event-Driven Programming
  • CS 226 Computer Organization and Architecture
  • MATH 225 Differential Equations
  • MATH 227 Biostatistical Design and Analysis
  • MATH 338 Probability
Internships and Research
Our students take advantage of internships at a variety of companies in Boston and beyond. You'll sharpen your skills and refine your interests while building your resume and developing key mentoring relationships.
