|Description:||The UWO Graduate Program in Scientific Computing aims to provide students from different disciplines with solid hands-on knowledge of how different computational techniques can be used in, for example, physical, biological and social sciences. The program consists of course work and research on the fundamental principles and techniques in computation in order for the students to be able to carry out computationally intensive work in their own field. The emphasis of the program is on the development of state-of-the-art methods and the application of these methods to real-world scientific problems. Examples include the development of algorithms, application of symbolic methods, high-performance computing, parallelization, data analysis and visualization.
This is a collaborative program in Computational Science offered jointly by a group of departments in the Faculties of Science and Medicine in order to train graduate students, at both the MSc and PhD level, in the application of computational science to their own discipline.
