In the Department of Computational Science, students pursue the theories and methodologies related to science and technology using a computational approach, and support this with study of the theories and basic technologies of high-performance computation. As a result, the program provides students with experience in the technical foundations of ultra-high-speed, massively parallel systems; the basics and applications of a computational approach, including mathematical modeling, simulation, and visualization; the understanding and elucidation of natural events based on a computational approach; and the prediction of unknown phenomena and events. We always take into consideration the potential industrial applications and societal contributions of computational science.
