Scientific Computation

Scientific computation is a rapidly evolving field that becomes more essential every day.

Students in class

Are you ready to solve tomorrow's problems?

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.

Our students are positioned to be critical scientists and team members, using their finely-honed quantitative analysis skills to make a difference in a variety of fields including economics, medicine and biology.
