Masters in Computational Science

Learn how to use computational science to do research in chemistry, chemical biology, biophysics and chemical physics.

The Masters in Computational Science is designed to prepare students in the methodology needed to do research in chemistry, chemical biology, biophysics and chemical physics using computational science. These academic disciplines have a critical dependence on computer simulation and large-scale data analysis to understand observed phenomena and advance disciplinary knowledge.

By focusing on either computation or informatics, students of the course will complete a combination of in-house and online training short courses in:

  • Scientific computing
  • High performance computing
  • Computational methods for data analysis
  • Data management
  • R Programming
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Statistical mechanics

Aims

Learn how to apply scripting, mathematical modelling and informatics to:

  • Chemistry
  • Chemical biology
  • Glycobiology
  • Genomics
  • Glycomics
  • Biophysics
  • Chemical physics

And gain research methodology competence through the investigation of a substantial problem in the domain sciences.

Outcomes

Perform research and complete a dissertation solving a modelling or informatics problem in the domain sciences. Produce scientific computer code using C++, Fortran and C, design computational models using Python or PERL, and apply or design analytics methods using R, SQL, MATLAB, or MAPLE.

Work on the frontier of computational science research.
