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 planning on attending graduate school.
- MATH 118 Introductory Statistics
- MATH 343 Mathematical Modeling
- CS 112 Introduction to Computer Science
