Why study Scientific Computing?

In this major, you will study the ins and outs of algorithms for the numerical approximations of mathematical analysis. All scientific endeavours, from biology to chemistry to pharmaceutical research, rely on such analysis. Computers hold the key for fast and efficient analysis of complex scientific problems. However, computers are digital systems, requiring discrete inputs and outputs, while mathematical analysis often rely on continuous functions. Therefore, careful approximations are necessary to enable computers analyse complex mathematical functions used in various scientific endeavours, including by various hospitals and universities medical research, and big pharmaceutical and petrochemical companies across the public and private sectors.
