The School of Computational Science and Engineering will offer graduate programs leading to professional and research Master’s degrees in either Science or Engineering, depending on whether the supervisor is from the faculty of Science or Engineering.
The Master’s programs emphasize industry relevant academic research and development. The Master’s degree may be earned either with a thesis option or with a coursework-and-project option to be determined when an offer of admission is made.
There are two routes which a candidate for the Master’s degree can take:
Expected completion time for full-time registered students: Coursework-and-project (16 months), Thesis (24 months).
The objective of the PhD program is to provide candidates with broad multi-disciplinary training in computational science and engineering, in preparation for a career in university-level teaching, academic research or a career in industry. Graduates are expected to have acquired autonomy in conducting research, preparing scholarly publications, and the development and application of novel ideas. These objectives are met through a rigorous combination of course work beyond the Master’s level and independent research that clearly demonstrates innovation and a contribution to the field. The program is designed to provide both a broad knowledge of computational methods and training in basic research. Candidates must demonstrate a broad and sound background by way of a Comprehensive Examination to qualify for this degree. Expected time for completion is 48 months.
