Facilities for Graduate Work

Support facilities for work in computational science, engineering, and mathematics include the Kuehne Physics Mathematics Astronomy Library, the Mallet Chemistry Library, the Walter Geology Library, the Perry-CastaƱeda Library, and the Life Science Library. Extensive computing facilities are available, including the POB scientific visualization laboratory and an Ethernet network supporting more than 300 general-purpose Linux, SGI, IBM, and Apple workstations. Other computational resources include several distributed memory computer clusters, each with between 16 and 256 cores. Faculty members, research staff, and graduate students also have access to large-scale supercomputing resources of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).

Areas of Study

Graduate study in computational science, engineering, and mathematics comprises three areas: applicable mathematics, numerical analysis and scientific computation, and mathematical modeling and applications. Within these broad areas, the student may take courses and conduct research in numerical analysis and scientific computing, applicable mathematics, computational mechanics and physics, parallel computing and computer architecture, and mathematical modeling, and in supporting areas in engineering and science that involve mathematical modeling of physical phenomena and engineering systems.
