Through the execution and completion of a substantial research project, the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program seeks to prepare students to become mature, independent scientists who are capable of the design, initiation and execution of their own original research in academic or industrial environment. It requires the application of considerable depth and breadth of scholarship, and there must be substantial discovery of new science.

Concentration: Scientific Computation

Scientific computation is among the fastest-growing multidisciplinary research area and it serves as a bridge between the traditional domains of theoretical and experimental sciences. Computation research covers many areas in science and engineering. The multidisciplinary nature of computational science and its wide-ranging scope means that its training and research can best be integrated into different disciplines to equip students with a solid foundation of the knowledge in focused areas. This concentration is intended for research postgraduate students who are interested in pursuing research in computation related research. Students can enroll in a particular discipline for research with a special focus in Scientific Computation.

The Scientific Computation Concentration is open to research postgraduates in the School of Science and the School of Engineering.

The Scientific Computation Concentration is designed to equip students with a solid foundation of the knowledge in different disciplines with following research foci.
