The use of computational methods and tools to solve important problems is a fact of life in the 21st century in the sciences, in engineering, and in many other fields. Knowledge of how these methods work, and how to use them effectively, has become crucial to the success of students entering these fields. Furthermore, close collaboration between those who develop new algorithms and the scientists and engineers who apply new methods to cutting-edge problems can foster innovation and greatly facilitate discovery.
In pursuit of these goals, the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering plans to offer a set of undergraduate courses and curricula that will meet the needs of students at Michigan State University. These offerings will include a comprehensive suite of coursework, an undergraduate minor in Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering, as well as potential undergraduate degrees.
Several courses have already been approved, and can be found here.
Currently, the department offers a minor in Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering, and in the future will offer a degree in data science (jointly with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Department of Statistics and Probability).
If you have any questions about the undergraduate coursework or curricula that will be offered, please contact the CMSE Undergraduate Director.
