Computational Science and Engineering

Computer simulation has revolutionized the research tools of engineers and is nowadays besides theory and experiments, essential to many scientists. While the development of high performance computing (HPC) started many decades ago and has provided many scientists with powerful computing capabilities, it has recently been recognized that integrating HPC to mathematical modeling, numerical algorithms and large scale data bases of observations will lead to a new paradigm in science and engineering.

EPFL has a broad range of research competences in computational science and engineering. A newly created Master in Computational Science and Engineering provides students an outstanding combination of skills in areas such as high performance computing, numerical mathematics, multiscale and multi-physics modeling together with a wide range of elective application courses.
