Computer Science Concentration - Computational Science and Engineering Track


This track is intended to introduce computer science basics of Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E). Students not intending to pursue an advanced degree are advised to choose Option 1 for electives and to take courses in some area of pure or applied science with the objective of learning how to develop software useful for the chosen area. Students intending to pursue an advanced degree are advised to choose Option 2 for electives and also to take the following courses: Physics lab science courses, MA 35100  rather than MA 26500 , MA 36200  or MA 44200 , MA 36600  rather than MA 26600 , MA 34100  or MA 44000  analysis.


  • ​At least four (4) of the seven (7) courses for Computational Science and Engineering track must be CS courses 
  • Any course beyond the one required class from the list of Applications/Systems courses may count as an elective.
  • Non-CS courses and graduate level courses may have additional prerequisites that must be met to be eligible to take the course.
  • All track requirements, regardless of department, must be completed with a grade of C or better.
  • Minimum grade requirement for prerequisites are ‘C’ unless alternative minimum grade requirement is listed.
