  • The Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) was established in 1999 within the College of Sciences at San Diego State University (SDSU) as an outgrowth of the Interdisciplinary Research Center. Its mission is to promote the development and advancement of computational science by bringing together researchers in different areas who have a common interest in modern scientific computation.

    The CSRC is engaged in a number of initiatives aimed at fostering interdisciplinary, computationally oriented scientific research -- from providing computing infrastructure and support for students, to developing educational programs and industrial interactions. It is the aim of the CSRC to function as an independent, self-sustained unit; therefore, its operation crucially depends on extramural funding.

  • The Computational Science and Engineering Program at MichiganTech has two main components: the non-departmental CSE Ph.D. program and the Computational Science and Engineering Research Institute (CSERI). The CSERI serves the Ph.D. program and the entire research community at MichiganTech. This multidisciplinary program faciliates the application of methods and techniques from the fields of computer science and mathematics to emerging problems in sciences and engineering. The program brings together faculty and students from across campus who have a common interest in and need for computational oriented research.

  • Created in the fall of 1992 to formalize the Computational Math Group that had been created in 1985, the Center for Computational Math (CCM) at UC Denver is a broad-based response to the rapid and dramatic changes in the various fields of computation. The Center is an interdisciplinary inter-campus organization within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences with associates at UC Denver, on other campuses of the Rocky Mountain Region, and within the business and research community of greater Denver. The Department of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences at UC Denver, where the Center physically resides, is the most important partner of the Center, as many of CCM members are also faculty members of the Department of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences, and as one of the major activities of the Center is training of high-level undergraduate and graduate students of the department in computational mathematics.

    The CCM is involved in the following major activities: Education, Research, Consulting, Resources, Corporate partnership.

  • The Designated Emphasis in Computational Science and Engineering (DECSE) is a specialization applicable to existing doctoral programs at Berkeley, which we refer to as our Associated Programs. By combining high-performance computing, mathematical modeling, scientific and engineering theory, and analysis of large scale data bases of observations, Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) promises to bring a new paradigm to interdisciplinary research and education.

  • Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) may be pursued as a subject minor by graduate students who are pursuing Ph.D. degrees in any option. The CSE minor is intended to supplement one of Caltech's graduate degrees and is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge of CSE beyond their major field of study. The CSE minor is also intended to recognize graduate students' interest in and dedication to CSE as demonstrated by the successful completion of a program of study in the field.

  • This degree program, offered jointly by the Department of Physics and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, makes it possible to pursue a number of career options. Graduates can pursue a research career in the traditional areas of physics such as condensed matter physics or particle physics, with a strong emphasis on computation. Graduates who pursue careers in physics education find that they are well prepared to use computers in the classroom and the teaching laboratory, and to develop educational software. Graduates can also play an important role in the development of virtual universities and the technology needed to facilitate distance learning, or pursue employment in firms that develop scientific software, as well as computer games. Even Wall Street employers are interested in people with a background in computational physics.

  • The German Research School for Simulation Sciences of Research Center Jülich and RWTH Aachen is dedicated to research and education in the applications and methods of HPC-based computer simulation in science and engineering. We provide a 4 semester Master’s and a 6 semester doctoral program for outstanding graduate students and are aiming at training the next generation of computational scientists and engineers. Coursework and research opportunities in topic areas ranging from state-of-the-art methods to the most advanced applications of computer simulation in the disciplines science and engineering are offered.

    The Master’s degree is obtained in the new and accredited program Simulation Sciences.
    Doctoral students will work in either a group directly belonging to the German Research School for Simulation Sciences or in one of the diverse groups associated with it.

  • The Computational Sciences program will be offered by The Cyprus Institutes' Computational-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC). The program will educate students and carry out significant research in Computational Science with specialization in important fields that require High Performance Computing such as climate modelling, high-energy and nuclear physics, materials science, computational chemistry, 3D visualization and computational biology. More precisely, the program will train future researchers in mathematical modelling and computational methods and techniques needed to solve complex scientific and engineering problems, as well as in management and visualization of complex data sets.

    The program will provide the necessary educational setting where excellence in education and research are fostered through interdisciplinary collaboration on regional problems of global significance.
