The Master in Computational Science and Engineering (M.C.S.E.), is a non-thesis degree program offered jointly by the departments of Computational and Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Statistics in the School of Engineering. The program is designed to provide training and expertise in modern and computational techniques with real-worldÂ applications in a wide range of industries. The M.C.S.E. graduate degree prepares students interested in technical and managerial positions such as computational scientist, computational engineer and big data analyst, as well as those looking to specialize in high-performance computing and software development techniques and scientific data analysis and visualization.
Students pursuing the M.C.S.E. degree must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours to satisfy degree requirements.
M.C.S.E. students choose the Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics (CAAM), Computer Science (COMP), Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) or Statistics (STAT) as their home department. The program of study includes courses from all three departments and typically focuses on courses from the studentsâ€™ home department. Courses taken within the home department have to be at the 500-level or above. A limited number of courses taken from outside the studentsâ€™ home department may be at the 300 or 400-level. Students should consult with their faculty mentor for approval.
