Computational Science and Engineering Program North Carolina A&T State University Greensboro, NC 27411

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCA&T) has established a master's degree program in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE). The program will be highly interdisciplinary, drawing expertise and resources from various disciplines across the University, and operating outside a department. It will offer an interdisciplinary curriculum combining applied mathematics, high performance parallel and scalable computing, scientific modeling and simulation, data visualization, and domain areas such as physical science and engineering, life sciences, agricultural and environmental sciences, technology and business. The aim of this program is to provide students with an opportunity to (a) master high performance computer programming tools as well as data acquisition and processing techniques; (b) acquire computational modeling, simulation and visualization skills; (c) relate acquired computational science and engineering knowledge and skills to specific application fields of science, engineering, technology and business; and (d) learn to develop novel and robust computational tools and methods to solve scientific, engineering, technological or business problems. Graduates of this program will be highly versatile computational scientists, engineers, technologists or business executives with a good understanding of the connections among various disciplines, and capable of interacting and collaborating effectively with scientists, engineers and other professionals in other fields.

The newly established MS degree program in CSE builds upon the University’s curricular strength and research capability in science, engineering, mathematics, technology, and business. It is a result of interdisciplinary collaboration among the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, School of Business and Economics, and the School of Technology. It will enhance and supplement current graduate research and education programs in science, engineering, mathematics, technology and business, and further the fertilizing and nurturing of cross-disciplinary interaction and collaboration in CSE among faculty and graduate students. As the first stand-alone CSE graduate degree program in the State of North Carolina and among HBCUs in the nation, the program will increase the eminence of North Carolina A&T State University in this keen technological area.
