Who is Eligible?
The student must be enrolled in a B.S. program in at least one of the SSE degree-awarding units. The B.S. requirements will guarantee that the student has a substantial background in the application area.
In addition to the requirements of the B.S. degree, the following course must be taken: Math 3310/6310: Scientific Computing I. With approval by the CCS Director, some students may take CENG 3230, PHYS 3170 or CMPS 2200 as a substitute.
24 hours (8 courses) must be taken to complete the masters. Up to 6 credits may be taken during years 1-4 as courses that double count toward the undergraduate major and the Masters degree. Up to an additional 6 credits during years 1-4 may be taken as part of the Masters degree (but not count toward the major).
