The Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) master’s program, led by faculty from Computer Science, Applied Math and the Engineering Sciences, and administered through the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), provides rigorous training in the mathematical and computational foundations of CSE. The master’s program offers students experience with mathematical techniques for modeling and simulation of complex systems; parallel programming and collaborative software development; and methods for organizing, exploring, visualizing, processing and analyzing very large data sets.
The Data Science master’s program, jointly led by the Computer Science and Statistics faculties and administered through the Institute for Applied Computational Science (IACS), trains students in the rapidly growing field of data science. The program offers strong preparation in statistical modeling, machine learning, optimization, management and analysis of massive data sets, and data acquisition. The program focuses on topics such as reproducible data analysis, collaborative problem solving, visualization and communication, and security and ethical issues that arise in data science.
