High Performance Computing and Simulations


The Master of Science in Computer Science (High Performance Computing and Simulations) is designed to:

  • Train a new generation of graduate students in Computer Science to solve challenging scientific and engineering problems using high-end parallel computers, high-speed networks, and advanced scientific visualization.
  • Support a unique dual-degree opportunity, in which students can obtain a Ph.D. in the physical sciences/engineering and an M.S. in Computer Science.
  • Train engineers from industry to solve real-world problems using state-of-the-art computational techniques. The program will satisfy the critical need to train students, who have expertise in the physical/biological sciences/engineering and computer science, as evidenced by the current and future trends in cutting edge research and in the job market.
