Computational Engineering Science and Mechanics (CESM) is a multidisciplinary field that encompasses applications in science/engineering, applied mathematics, numerical analysis and computer science. It is a specialized field of science/mechanics.
Computational simulation of many complex physical, chemical and biological systems provide predictive and detailed information that cannot be deduced from other more expensive physical tests. Recognizing this increasing reliance on computer simulations in academia, research laboratories and industries, and the need to complement its strong research program in computational science, the ESM Department will award MS and PhD graduates who satisfy the requirements listed below a Certificate in Computational Engineering Science and Mechanics. The awarding of this certificate will recognize the efforts, achievements and capabilities of these graduates and enable them to present themselves as CESM specialists.
Admission requirements will be the same as those for the MS degree in Engineering Mechanics.
A student must take four courses from the following list, earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0/4.0, and earn a C+ grade or better in every course.
