Scientific computing is a field of applied computer science where computing theories and software techniques are used to serve and advance many diverse fields, including but not limited to business, science, engineering, and social science. The scientific computing minor program is designed to help students understand the development and use of scientific computing, as it relates to specific disciplines.
In order to select courses that meet the program requirements, students pursuing the minor must consult with both their major advisor and with the advisor of computational science in the Department of Computing Sciences.
Choose three approved courses at the 300 level or above in the area of interest (9 credits)
Total Credits Required: 19 Credits
Scientific computing minor students must earn a grade of ‘C’ or better in each course taken that is applied toward the minor requirements, and the three approved cognate courses in the area of interest must be determined in advance by: the minor advisor, the chair(s) of the disciplines of the cognate courses in question, and by the chair of the Department of Computing Sciences.
