Computational Science

The Department of Aerospace Engineering administers this interdisciplinary minor. Each student's program is planned by the student and a designated computational science adviser, in consultation with the graduate adviser in the student's major field.

The minor offers an opportunity for students in all colleges and majors to pursue a focused set of courses that emphasize computational science. The minor requires 9 credits in computational science courses for a master's degree and 15 credits for a doctoral minor. All students must take at least one of these: AERSP 424, CMPSC 450, NUC E 530, or CSE 557 and at least one of these: MATH 523, MATH/CSE 550,  STAT 500, or STAT/IST 557. The additional credits will be chosen from a list of approved courses on the CSCI website ( In addition, for the Master's Minor and Ph.D. Minor the students can use at most 6 and 9 credits, respectively, from (or cross-listed with) their home department.

More information can be found on the CSCI website:
