The Minor requires 12 credit hours of course work in computations and related areas plus a dissertation involving high performance computing. Two of the courses must be beyond the minimum course requirement for the student’s regular program. The courses must be selected from the list below, or be approved by the coordinator of the minor. At least one course must be from the Numerical Methods group and one course must be from the Scientific Computing group. Many of the courses are taught every year, thus providing ample opportunities to complete the minor during a doctoral study.
