Computational Sciences and Engineering.

Many experiments that have traditionally been performed in a laboratory are being augmented or replaced by computational simulations blending science and engineering with numerical computing and visualization. This course serves as one step in the formation of computational scientists and engineers that will be carrying those tasks.

A computational scientist or engineer applies computational technology to advance their respective discipline. Computational scientists and engineers work to obtain a better understanding of some phenomena, or an improved design, through a judicious match of a science or engineering problem, the model that computer system used in its implementation, and the assessment of each of these steps through visualization.
