Computational Science & Engineering
(CSE) at McGill University

Are you interested in learning about computer simulations?
Are you enrolling or enrolled in a masters program at McGill?
Do you want to enhance your chances for an interesting job?
Then the brand new CSE program at McGill could be for you!

Many of the best universities around the world like Stanford, Oxford, Princeton, Austin/Texas, NYU, KTH, ETH and more have introduced special programs to train graduate students in CSE. Now McGill also has such a program in the departments of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS), Computer Science (CS), Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Mathematics and Statistics (MATH), Mechanical Engineering (ME) and others could be joining soon.

What is Computational Science and Engineering (CSE)?
CSE is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary area with connections to the sciences, engineering, mathematics and computer science. CSE focuses on the development of problem-solving methodologies and robust tools for the solution of scientific and engineering problems. We believe that CSE will play an important if not dominating role for the future of the scientific discovery process and engineering design (see

Computation is now regarded as an equal and indispensable partner, along with theory and experiment, in the advance of scientific knowledge and engineering practice. Numerical simulation enables the study of complex systems and natural phenomena that would be too expensive or dangerous, or even impossible, to study by direct experimentation. The quest for ever higher levels of detail and realism in such simulations requires enormous computational capacity, and has provided the impetus for dramatic breakthroughs in computer algorithms and architectures. Due to these advances, computational scientists and engineers can now solve large-scale problems that were once thought intractable.
