Computational science is an interdisciplinary field in which realistic mathematical models combined with scientific computing methods are used to study, usually through computer simulation and modeling, systems of real-world scientific or societal interest. Computer simulation and modeling are used to perform "computer experiments" of car crashes to design safety features; to predict long term climate changes; to design new or retrofitted buildings for earthquake resistance; and to understand biological systems at the molecular level to design new medicines; among other applications.

Even in the increasingly challenging economic times of the last several years, our undergraduate and graduate students have an excellent record for employment. Many have found jobs with such employers as Lockheed Martin, Google, Boeing, Ricoh, and ENSCO. Others have gone on to doctoral study at such prestigious institutions as Purdue, George Mason University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
