A New Perspective on Computational Science Education


"The field of computational science and engineering was first recognized at research institutions and industrial settings where dependency on computers was growing rapidly. Prominent schools were first to establish graduate certificate programs to integrate computational research into PhD education. As new initiatives appeared at the government level for high-performance computing and communications and the job market heated up, the need for new CSE professionals at MS and even BS levels became obvious. To help fill this need, the US Government offers support to educate future computational scientists (see, including at the undergraduate level. But how do we educate these students? At the 1999 High Performance Computer Users Group Conference (see, organized by the Computational Science faculty at the State University of New York, Brockport, a session on CSE education gathered valuable input from the community. We had an interesting session there on Brockport's undergraduate CSE program."
