Computational Science

Get in on the Ground Floor
Computational Science is an exciting, emerging field at the intersection of mathematics and science. Computational Scientists use mathematics in multidisciplinary research projects in science and engineering to compute answers and create new algorithms and ideas. The Bachelor of Science in Computational Science is tailored to students who are interested in the application of mathematics to science and engineering as well as the development of strong computing and programming skills. This interdisciplinary program provides the student with a strong grounding in applied mathematics and computer science.

Through collaboration between mathematicians and scientists, they develop better models of climate change, better models of drug interaction, better ways to defend against cyber attacks. Stevens is one of the few Universities in the country to offer a degree in Computational Sciences at the undergraduate level, meaning students are already ahead of the competition when pursuing a job in industry or an advanced degree.

Why Study Math at Stevens?
Quick: think of the top 15 most lucrative college degrees. What do they all have in common? Math. Mathematics is about more than just trigonometric functions and the quadratic formula. It teaches you to reason carefully and think logically, skills needed in any career. To address the interdisciplinary nature of Mathematics, Computational Science students specialize in a certain topic, and take classes outside of mathematics in order to broaden their education. Students may specialize in one of the following areas:

  • Computational Chemistry
  • Computational Mechanics
  • Computational Oceanography
  • Computational Physics
  • Computer Vision and Graphics
  • Cybersecurity
  • Environmental Engineering
