Graduate Study
Minor in Scientific Computing

The minor in scientific computing offers a substantive programming and algorithmic knowledge base to science students. The minor certifies that a student has the programming and algorithmic skills to develop codes to solve modern engineering problems. Additionally, students gain a better understanding of the algorithms used in packaged software and their limitations so that using packaged software can be done in a judicious way without blindly accepting package output. This minor is open to only MS students.

Required Course

The required course for the scientific computing minor is ESAM 446-1. This course teaches the fundamentals of numerically solving partial differential equations that arise in science and engineering.


Elective courses cover specialized numerical methods and core computing skills for modern high-performance computing architectures.
