About

The Master in Computational Science and Engineering (M.C.S.E.) at Rice University, is a non-thesis degree program offered jointly by the departments of Computational and Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Statistics in the School of Engineering. 

Overview

The Computational Science and Engineering program at Rice University is designed to provide training and expertise in modern and computational techniques with real-world applications in a wide range of industries. The M.C.S.E. graduate degree prepares students interested in technical and managerial positions such as computational scientist, computational engineer and big data analyst, as well as those looking to specialize in high-performance computing and software development techniques and scientific data analysis and visualization.

The programme

Students in the M.C.S.E. program select on of the four departments (Computational and Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical and Computing Engineering, and Statistics) as their home department/area of specialization. M.C.S.E. students take a core of courses from all four departments, but are expected to focus their course electives on courses in their home department.
