Secondary Field in Computational Science and Engineering

Doctoral students from across the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences can complete a Secondary Field in Computational Science and Engineering

Completion of the Secondary Field will equip students with rigorous computational methods for approaching scientific questions. These approaches include mathematical techniques for modeling and simulation of complex systems; parallel programming and collaborative software development; and methods for organizing, exploring, visualizing, processing and analyzing very large data sets. CSE is an exciting and rapidly evolving field that exploits the power of computation as an approach to major challenges at the frontiers of natural and social science and all engineering fields. In keeping with Harvard's emphasis on foundational knowledge, our program focuses on cross-cutting mathematical and computational principles important across disciplines.
