The CS&E Program recognizes two categories of courses: core and affiliated.

Core courses

Core courses address the issues that are common to all scientific, engineering, and computing disciplines with intensive requirements for high performance computing. They are multidisciplinary in nature with many examples and practical problems relevant to current research. A subset of these courses is mandatory for all CS&E students. To ensure that these courses are up-to-date, they will be partially taught, as appropriate, by researchers of national renown from outside the university. These guest instructors will be in residence for one to two weeks at a time and will be available for interaction with students. The list of possible core courses, some under development, is presented below.

  • Advanced Data Management
  • Applied Fuzzy Logic and Neural Networks
  • Collaborative Research Environments
  • Computational Geometry, Grid/Mesh Generation
  • Computational Optimization
  • Control Theory
  • Distributed Databases
  • Domain Decomposition and Parallel Algorithms
  • Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Image and Time Series Analysis
