The University of Pittsburgh has recently established a multidisciplinary PHD Program in Computational Modeling and Simulation. This program will provide students expertise in numerical algorithms and advanced programming, as well as a solid background in a core discipline.
The present concentration areas are:
- Biological Sciences
- Chemical and Petroleum Engineering
- Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Materials Science
- Physics and Astronomy
- Renowned faculty from a wide range of disciplines
- World-class computing resources at the University’s Center for Simulation and Modeling
- Fellowships and assistantships for the most qualified applicants
