Computational Science and Engineering

This is a minor field. Application for admission is made only to the major fields. After matriculation, a student may select minor subjects from the major or minor fields.

The CIS program in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) spans several dozen departments and research areas. The field is application-driven and involves a mix of applied mathematics, numerical analysis, and computer science

Ph.D. students at Cornell can minor in CSE. Requirements are flexible and there are dozens of faculty members [CSE Field ] who can serve as the CSE advisor.

The Cornell Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) provides an essential resource for students.

CIS has received an IGERT award from the National Science Foundation making it possible to support a large contingent of Ph.D. students who work on complex nonlinear systems.

A priority concern of the CSE program is the development of a coordinated curriculum that serves computationally-oriented graduate students throughout science and engineering.
