Course Description

Scientists studying problems in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics or medicine and designers dealing with problems in engineering, industry, architecture or the arts increasingly depend on technology to assist them in their work. Computational Science is an emerging multi-disciplinary field that combines together computer science and natural science with mathematical modelling, numerical computation, high performance computing and graphical data visualization.

Upon successful completion of the programme, students would be capable of modelling of real world problems, analysing data and provide solutions for scientific and industrial communities by using advanced computer techniques and technology.
