Programs of study and research leading to both the Master of Science degree and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Computational Engineering at Mississippi State University are offered on the Starkville Campus and through Distance Education. 

There is an increased demand by industry, academia, and government for scientists and engineers with a better knowledge of the skills necessary to create new technologies and improve upon existing ones through simulation tools. Such programs come with curricula covering a large range of subjects, so that they can produce scientists and engineers with broad backgrounds and viewpoints. 

These scientists and engineers can then be expected to understand the basic approaches to solving analytical problems and also using mathematical and computational tools required to arrive at solutions. The program is open to students with undergraduate degrees in engineering, computer science, mathematics, or a physical science. Research assistantships are available through research projects in the HPC2.
