  1. 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?
  2. Hey Guys, First Post. I was wondering how to tell the competitiveness of the Penn's MSE program before I apply for the March Deadline. The most recent stats has someone with a GPA under 3.4! And then there are two other people, one has a 3.9 and high GRE scores and the other doesn't have any listed stats. Do you think they have a low threshold in accepting people, even if it is Penn? Thanks!
