  1. Hello all! Hope this post finds you in good health. So, I applied for a master's in Computational Science and Engineering at TUM and cleared the first level of screening. The next step is an interview, which I have roughly 15 days to prepare for. The email I received specified that a Mathematics professor will take my interview. I would like to know what kind of questions I might get asked and how much preparation would be required for it. Have any of you here had to give this interview? Any insight would be helpful. And if you can recall some questions, then it would be great. Thanks a lot! P.S. I am an international applicant with a bachelor's in Materials Science and Engineering. I did a number of computational projects within the scope of Materials Science and Engineering. I also took a few courses relevant to computational sciences in general during my bachelor's.
  2. Can someone please evaluate my profile for Georgia Tech's MS in Computational Science and Engineering program (School of Computing Home Unit)? GRE - 325 (Quant 165, Verbal 160) TOEFL - 117 (Reading 30, Listening 29, Speaking 28, Writing 30) Undergraduate degree - Electrical Engineering Projects - 2 in the field of Electrical Engineering and 4 in the field of Computer Science No research papers 10 certified online courses from Coursera, edX, and Udacity Thanks in advance
  3. I have been accepted to two Master's programs in Germany. The first one is Computational Science and Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the other one is the Scientific Computing program at Universitat Heidelberg. Both courses have similar pattern in that the first three semesters are reserved for the coursework while the fourth semester is devoted to the Master's thesis. The information I have gathered seems to suggest that TUM's program is better structured and the mandatory modules encompass core areas in computational science. However, I am not quite sure about the mathematical side of things since they only offer courses on Numerical Methods/Analysis. On the other hand, Heidelberg's program is being offered by the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics and according to a professor I talked to, places a great deal of emphasis on mathematics. Again however, it seems that this program is rather wanting when it comes to courses in Computer Science. I am happy with the Application Areas that both universities provide (you have to choose courses from certain application areas such as Physics, Biosciences etc.). Regarding research, TUM offers excellent students a chance to earn an Hons. degree by becoming a part of the Bavarian Graduate School of Computational Engineering. The program at Heidelberg is associated with the Interdisciplinary center for Scientific Computing and they say that excellent students would be allowed to join the PhD program (I have been seriously considering a PhD) at the Center after the first year. Given that I want the option to do a PhD while focusing on both core areas in Scientific Computing and research, which program do you think would be a better option? I think that when it comes to employment and international repute TUM seems to be the obvious choice. However, I am willing to neglect that if Heidelberg's program is significantly better. If you know about the programs, can you please comment on whether they offer a diverse range of subjects including ML and Game Theory?
  4. Hey Guys! I have been waiting to hear back from MIT for its PhD program in Computational Science & Engineering, and I have not found much information of Grad Cafe--which can makes me believe not many people applied for this program. Which could be a good thing or a bad thing. Could you comment if you applied to this program, say which is your host department, and whether or not you have heard anything? Thanks!
