All CPS students must take CPS 5401 and CPS 5310 to be taught during the Fall and Spring semesters, respectively.
CPS 5401 Introduction to Computational Science (4-0) (Fall Semester). Introduction to basic computational science skills including UNIX, scientific programming using high level languages, message passing interface, and parallel computer architectures.
CPS 5310 Mathematical and Computer Modeling (3-0) (Spring Semester). Computer simulation of selected practical problems from physics, engineering, geology, biology, or chemistry. Students learn to create mathematical models, formulate modeling assumptions, select appropriate numerical methods, implement them in the form of a computer program, and visualize the numerical results. Emphasis is given to verification and validation procedures, and team-oriented training activities. Prerequisite: CPS 5401 or instructor approval.
