Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) graduates from ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology will be able to understand a problem from the scientific and technological point of view and have the requisite skills to perform a computer-based analysis. They will be capable of working and thinking in an interdisciplinary way.
Profile and educational objective
Computational science and engineering means mathematical modelling, numerical solution techniques and the use of computers to analyse and solve scientific and technological problems. Besides studies in the fields of application from science and engineering, students will learn how to use the most important mathematical methods and computer tools.
CSE is different from both computer science and the traditional science and engineering. It represents a third scientific way in addition to theory and experiment. In brief, computational science and engineering is interdisciplinary, application oriented, focused on problem solving, and based on computer simulation.
RW/CSE graduates are able to communicate with specialists from the areas of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and computer science and work together with them in finding solutions to complex practical problems.
The interdisciplinary education the RW/CSE curriculum provides in mathematics, computer science and application is an ideal basis for a career in industry and business.
