Scientific Computing


Recommended Posts

I have 2 questions here. I am planning on going into Phd program doing something along the lines of scientific computing. I will graduate with an undergraduate in Computer Science and Math so I am wondering whether it would be better to go into an Applied Math program or a scientific computing specialization under a computer science department. In the end I would like to work in the area of scientific computing but my real passion is the math behind it (if that makes sense). Any suggestions?

My second question is what schools have good scientific computing programs? When I was looking up some schools for computer science some of them didn't even have a program in Scientific computing. Is that normal?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by scientific computing. Do you mean algorithms for solving scientific problems? Because if so, such things are typically covered in the scientific fields themselves, e.g. by a computational physics groups within a physics department.
