Computational Science is a new exciting field that is interdisciplinary in approach with applications in the science and engineering fields as well as other disciplines where sophisticated computation is necessary.

The master's degree program in computational science is a interdisciplinary program involving various subject areas including computer science, biology, mathematics, and physics. This program deals with complex real world problems whose solution cannot be found through single discipline approach, but only through multidisciplinary approach to be tackled. This scientific focus identifies and solves complex problems through computer applications of mathematical modeling and quantitative analyses, unlike the field of computer science per se which concentrates on a study of computers, computation and data processing.

A unique aspect of this program compared to a conventional degree in computer science is that extensive internship training is required as a part of the degree requirement. The computer science department is the hosting department for this program and will collaborate with several supporting departments to offer various required and elective courses in the related disciplines.
