Graduate Programs in Applied Computation

Applied Computation, which encompasses Data Science (DS) and Computational Science and Engineering (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.

Housed within the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), the applied computation graduate programs focus on computational and data science principles that are important across disciplines.  Students are trained to solve real-world problems and conduct innovative research by using mathematical models, algorithms, systems innovations and statistical tools. Project-based courses provide practical experience in leadership development and collaborative problem solving. The programs include:

S.M. and M.E. degree programs in Computational Science and Engineering.

A Secondary Field program in Computational Science and Engineering.


A new S.M. degree program in Data Science will begin in fall 2018.
