Master’s Degree in Computational Science
A Flexible Multidisciplinary Program
Computational Science is a thriving field of study at the interface between computer science, mathematics (and statistics), the natural sciences and engineering (financial included). Practitioners of the art develop mathematical models, construct and optimize numerical algorithms, then deploy the mon increasingly powerful computers, as they address (real-life) scientific problems in fields where quantitative/compute-intensive modeling and simulation are essential to optimal design, predictive analytics, and inference.
The Graduate Program in Computational Sciences (GPCS) at AUB is open to students with backgrounds in computer science, (applied)-mathematics and statistics, natural sciences or engineering, who wish to further their undergraduate experience with computers and computing via intensive (hands-on) study, development and application of state-of-the-art numerical algorithms.
Having completed core courses in the program, a student will then follow a sequence of elective courses, then formulate and tackle problems in fields currently explored at AUB (e.g. machine learning/artificial intelligence/data mining, bioinformatics, biostatistics, operation research, computational (astro)-physics, hydrogeology, structural/ fluid dynamics, networking protocols, cyber-security...etc).
The program prepares the student for a PhD/academic adventure in applied mathematics, computational sciences and related fields, as well as a career in industries or research centers where modeling, simulation, design, and optimization are key.
