The core of scientific computing is the development of mathematical models and computer simulations to understand various physical phenomena. Modeling and simulation can be used to verify hypotheses, make predictions, and drive experimental data collection. This minor provides students with (i) a solid programming background for running computer simulations, (ii) a computing and modeling course for learning how to develop mathematical models, (iii) a foundational methods course for learning how to analyze the stability and accuracy of computer simulations, and (iv) an elective course to explore additional topics or applications of scientific computing.
