CS&E Institutions

  • The mission of the Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS) is to provide quality graduate and undergraduate education, research, and service emphasizing the central role of computational methodologies in the physical, mathematical, and data sciences.

    The educational and research programs of CDS are highly interdisciplinary, with an emphasis on theoretical science, computer simulation, and data analysis.

    The objective of the department is to provide Virginia, and the nation as a whole, with world-class resources for attacking the interdisciplinary research problems that characterize the challenges faced in the new millennium.

    The inclusion of theoretical, computational, and data science components results in a unique community of scholars ideally suited for the challenges of interdisciplinary research in the years ahead.

  • The Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) Graduate Option Program at the University of Illinois fosters and coordinates interdisciplinary, computationally oriented research and education across all fields of science and engineering, and prepares students to work effectively in such an interdisciplinary environment. CSE is sponsored by the College of Engineering, but participation is not limited to academic departments within the College. All faculty members affiliated with CSE have regular faculty appointments in one of the participating departments.

    Students electing the CSE Option as part of their graduate educational program become proficient in computing technology, including numerical computation and the practical use of advanced computer architectures, as well as in an applied discipline in science or engineering. Such proficiency is gained, in part, through courses that are specially designed to reduce the barriers to interdisciplinary study. Thesis research by CSE students has a major computational component and is actively advised by faculty members from multiple departments.

  • Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E) at Purdue University is an interdisciplinary graduate program, that started in the fall of 1995. It offers specializations in 'Computational Science' and 'Computational Engineering' for graduate students in the participating departments across the Colleges of Science, Engineering, Pharmacy, Agriculture, Health Science, and Technology. Specializations are offered at both MS and Ph.D. levels.

  • The Program in Quantitative and Computational Biology (QCB) is intended to facilitate graduate education at Princeton at the interface of biology and the more quantitative sciences and computation. Administered from The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, QCB is a collaboration in multidisciplinary graduate education among faculty in the Institute and the Departments of Chemistry, Computer Science, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Molecular Biology, and Physics. The program covers the fields of genomics, computational biology, systems biology, biophysics, quantitative genetics, molecular evolution, and microbial interactions.

  • The new Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovations (CCNI), one of the most powerful supercomputers based exclusively at a university, is helping Rensselaer researchers address fundamental issues in next-generation semiconductor technology, while also enabling key nanotechnology innovations in energy, biotechnology, new materials, arts, and medicine.

    The CCNI, the result of a partnership involving Rensselaer, IBM, and New York state, provides a platform for researchers to perform a broad range of computational simulations, from the interactions between atoms and molecules up to the behavior of complete devices.

  • Mathematical and Computational Science is an interdepartmental undergraduate program designed as a major for students interested in the mathematical sciences, or in the use of mathematical ideas and analysis of problems in the social or management sciences. It provides a core of mathematics basic to all mathematical sciences and an introduction to the concepts and techniques of computation, optimal decision-making, probabilistic modeling, and statistical inference. It also provides an opportunity for elective work in any of the mathematical science disciplines at Stanford.

    The program utilizes the faculty and courses of the departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, Management Science and Engineering, and Statistics. It prepares students for graduate study or employment in the mathematical and computational sciences or in those areas of applied mathematics which center around the use of computers and are concerned with the problems of the social and management sciences.

  • Computational Science & Engineering (CSE) is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary area with connections to the sciences, engineering, mathematics, and computer science. It focuses on the integration of knowledge and methodologies from all of these disciplines to create powerful problem-solving tools for a wide range of important and timely problems in science and engineering.

    At University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), we offer an interdisciplinary Master's and Ph.D. degree emphasis in CSE, in collaboration with the Departments of Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, and Mechanical and Environmental Engineering. UCSB has a long tradition of interdisciplinary research, and strong programs in the CSE departments. The CSE emphasis offers a broad multidisciplinary educational experience with strong foundations in both the enabling technologies of computer science and applied mathematics and in cutting-edge applications in engineering and science. The CSE emphasis provides both depth in a traditional academic area, and breadth in CSE technologies.

  • Our computational sciences program is designed to equip graduates with a distinctive blend of theoretical and computational skills, for employment in industry, research laboratories and institutions of higher education. A distinctive feature of our program is that all core aspects of a student’s program of study, constituting in general the first two years of study, are undertaken within our one interdisciplinary department. While the bulk of their coursework will be undertaken in this department, their research topics may range across the computational aspects of a broad spectrum of disciplines.
