The PhD program in Computational Science produces mathematical scientists who bring the latest in computational methodology and problem solving to a variety of academic and industry settings.
Offered in collaboration with San Diego State University’s Computational Science Research Center, CGU’s PhD in Computational Science emphasizes interdisciplinary scholarship over specialization. Students learn to export computational and mathematical methods and applications across disciplinary boundaries while conducting graduate-level research. You’ll undertake collaborative research with faculty at CGU and SDSU who possess extensive backgrounds in applied mathematics, computational science, statistics, physical sciences, industrial modeling, and more. Our program creates versatile computational researchers who are prepared to contribute to research and development in modern academic, government, and industrial settings.
- In addition to working with faculty from CGU, you will complete graduate level courses and research projects under the supervision of SDSU faculty from the departments of physics, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, and biology.
- Unlike most other doctoral programs, the interdisciplinary approach of this program will prepare you for a career outside academia as someone capable of working beyond traditional boundaries, within multidisciplinary teams, applying what you know to other areas of research and development.
- Your degree is awarded jointly by both Claremont Graduate University and San Diego State University.
