Memorial University’s MSc program in Scientific Computing was one of the first in North America, and remains the only such program in Atlantic Canada. Both MSc and PhD programs are now being offered in Scientific Computing. These programs train students in advanced computational techniques and in the application of these techniques to at least one scientific area, such as Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Physics, or Physical Oceanography. Students can expect to gain knowledge and experience in: (1) state-of-the-art numerical methods, (2) high performance computer architectures, (3) use of software development tools for parallel and vector computers, (4) graphics, visualization, and multimedia tools, and (5) acquisition, processing, and analysis of large experimental data sets. MSc – The program is offered in both thesis and non-thesis (project) versions, with a cooperative education (co-op) option also available. Both full-time and part-time studies are possible. A distinguishing characteristic of this program is the emphasis on interdisciplinary studies. Graduating students will have mastered a broader range of science and engineering areas than graduates from the more traditional, discipline-based programs.
