Graduate Studies

The GPCS offers degrees at the M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels. Key Goals:
  1. To provide an excellent foundation in the techniques and methodology used in scientific computing.

  2. To encourage broad interdisciplinary interactions in scientific computing, e.g., by fostering collaborative research.

Students who graduate in this program will get either an MSc or a PhD degree with the words with Scientific Computing added to their certificate. Students must be accepted into a graduate program in a collaborating department before enrolling in the Scientific Computing program. This initial program is considered the student's primary program.

MSc Program

The curriculum consists of:

  1. Three courses in computational science, which shall include a core Scientific Computing course and at least one course which is not part of the students primary graduate program
  2. active participation in the seminar series Scientific Computing SC9501/SC9601, and
  3. a thesis or research project (depending on the primary graduate program), which includes a significant computational component.
The core Scientific Computing courses are available to all collaborating departments. Please see the links on the right for a description.

Doctoral Program

Admission to the Doctoral Program requires successful completion of the Master's Program requirements. Students who have completed the program as part of their M.Sc. need to meet criteria 2. and 3. above during their Ph.D. Program.

A list of courses recognized by GPSC can be found at the links on the right side.
