CSE is an exciting and rapidly evolving field that exploits the power of computation as an approach to major challenges on the frontiers of natural and social science and all engineering fields. In keeping with Harvard's emphasis on foundational knowledge, our program will focus on cross-cutting mathematical and computational principles important across disciplines.
A new master's degree program designed to train new leaders for a future where large-scale computation and advanced mathematical modeling will propel discovery and innovation in fields from psychology to photonics.
The program will begin accepting applications this fall, for enrollment in September 2013.
SEAS welcomes applications for the Secondary Field in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE). This Secondary Field is available to any student enrolled in a Ph.D. program in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
Model programs are guides for enrolled Ph.D. students and provide SEAS-wide course requirements for degrees with area-specific course requirements, guidelines, and model programs that are intended to help students develop programs with sound intellectual frameworks.
