  1. I am a non EU citizen. Planning to do MS at Uppsala? Any comments regarding future prospects and quality of the program? What are my chances of getting into good grad program at Cambridge/Oxford/ETHZ/EPFL assuming a good performance at masters level?
  2. I am interested in a PhD computational science (developing methods to solve PDEs, specifically) and I want to know how the MIT CDO program compares to the ICES at UT Austin and ICME, Stanford. I have often seen that the MIT CDO/CSE program is not mentioned in discussions about computational science. Is it too small a program? Or not good enough, as, say the CSEM program offered by ICES, UT Austin? (I have a CDO admit from MIT and a PhD admit from ICES, UT Austin. I believe the result for ICME wil come out sometime in mid-March)
  3. I am a PhD student and I had some research funding lined up for the upcoming year, but it fell through at the last minute quite unexpectedly. So right now I'm frantically scrambling to secure some alternate funding. I'm on an F-1 visa, so off-campus employment is really not an option (apart from applying for OPT which takes months to process). This is why I am looking for dissertation fellowship opportunities as well. I know that most fellowships for a given academic year have deadlines early in the year, but I was wondering whether there are some with (very) late deadlines, or consider applications on a rolling basis, etc. My program as well as my dissertation project is on a cross-roads between the social sciences (sociology, economics) and computational sciences (think data mining/crunching, simulation and modeling), so I would be looking for something along those lines. Thanks for any tips.
  4. Hi! UChicago's MACSS is a new 2-year program, so there aren't any alumni to ask. So I wanted to see what any of you may think about it. I found a quote from their Managing Director: “Our program is importantly different from the 10–12 high-level computational programs that presently exist on other campuses. Most of our peers are also one-year programs, and as a result have exceptionally high quantitative thresholds for admission, so there’s really no opportunity to have a shot unless you’ve already done that computational work.” So it seems that this is for candidates who want to go into computing/quant for soc.science, but with little previous math? Judging by their website, they also seem to cater to PhD prep and Big Data analysis. On their sample course tracks they list quite a number of courses on the Bachelor's level. Should that be a concern? What do you all think?
  5. So the title is pretty self explanatory, but let me really explain what I'm trying to understand. As a prospective structural engineer, I wanted to know the difference between FEA and C.M. To be more specific, computational 'structural' mechanics, as opposed to comp. fluid mech. I have heard that FEA is fairly interdisciplinary, i.e. something that draws a lot from applied math and even computer science. So the question is - how is computational structural mechanics different. And is FEA really employed a lot in construction. I know that it's very useful in aerospace, but how about good ol buildings. cheers.
