Computational Sciences - Certificate

The Institute for Scientific Computation developed the Computational Sciences Certificate Program to meet the increased need for computational techniques that help solve complex science and engineering problems. This program targets science and engineering students enrolled in graduate studies, providing them with a broad-based multidisciplinary enhancement to their degree program and preparing them with the intellectual infrastructure necessary as a leader in computational science, engineering, and technology. By completing this certification program, a graduate will receive an official certified transcript that will add value and marketability to their advanced degree. The Computational Sciences Certificate Program provides formal documentation on a student’s transcript that they successfully completed courses focused on computational aspects that supplement their degree in science or engineering. To fulfill the certification requirements, a student must complete four total courses (one core and three electives), as described by the program curriculum, and a capstone project within their home department.
