The computing program is designed to provide students, through scholarship and research, the computational knowledge and skills to address significant technical challenges in one of the following four emphasis areas:
- Computational Science and Engineering: Focus on construction of mathematical models and quantitative analysis techniques and use of computers to analyze and solve Scientific and engineering problems.
- Computer Science: Focus on theory, design, development, and application of computer and software systems, and the development of algorithms for data search, manipulation, and analysis.
- Cyber Security: Focus on protection of computers, networks, programs, industrial control systems, and data from unintended or unauthorized access, change, or destruction.
- Data Science: Focus on using scientific, mathematical, and statistical methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data.
