These programs train students in advanced computational techniques and in the application of these techniques to at least one scientific area, such as Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Physics, or Physical Oceanography. Students can expect to gain knowledge and experience in: (1) state-of-the-art numerical methods, (2) high performance computer architectures, (3) use of software development tools for parallel and vector computers, (4) graphics, visualization, and multimedia tools, and (5) acquisition, processing, and analysis of large experimental data sets.
The MSc and PhD Scientific Computing programs at the Memorial University of Newfoundland are interdisciplinary, enriched by the expertise of faculty members in a range of academic units. Researchers in external organizations contribute by co-supervising students, providing placements for co-op students, providing computing resources, and teaching some courses. The program has close links with ACEnet, the Atlantic Canada Excellence network of high performance computers on which much of our computational work is carried out.
Research and Teaching
- The Faculty of Science is focused on exceptional teaching and research to deliver high quality academic programs and make significant contributions to the world in which we live.
- We are also committed to providing students with opportunities for hands-on learning by way of innovative research projects - in the classroom, in the lab and in the field.
- The goal of Scientific Computing is to solve technical problems, in science and engineering, using computers and computational methods. Our program educates students to apply computational, numerical and programming concepts and tools to solve and model complex problems in science and engineering.
- Students apply their skills to solve problems in astrophysics, nanomagnetism, quantum chemistry, vision systems, data analysis, computational fluid dynamics, physical oceanorgraphy, artificial networks, genetic studies and in many other areas.
- The program has close links with ACEnet, the Atlantic Canada Excellence network of high performance computers on which much of our computational work is carried out.
