Program Description

Computational science is the discovery, implementation, simulation and application of models to solve scientific and engineering problems. The master's degree program accommodates students whose objectives are either the master's degree or preparation for doctoral study in some aspect of the computational sciences. The doctoral program is designed for individuals of outstanding ability who show promise as researchers in an interdisciplinary environment.

The diverse research opportunities in our naturally interdisciplinary department are enhanced by the research programs of associated faculty on the Marquette campus in the sciences and engineering and Milwaukee area research laboratories and clinics.
