Developing Leaders Within
Computational Engineering and Sciences
The Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) fosters interdisciplinary research and graduate studies for developing high-performance computing solutions to address complex societal problems.
Our Ph.D. program ranks number one in the world according to CWUR.
The Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics (CSEM) graduate program is an interdisciplinary program leading to the PhD degree that prepares students for the field of computational and mathematical modeling.
The Institute annually offers generous Postdoc fellowships coupled with employee benefits and relocation expense reimbursements. Applications are accepted until Jan. 1 for the following fall semester.
- We are accepting Fall 2018 graduate program applications until Dec. 15.
- 2018 Postdoctoral Fellowship applications accepted now until January 4, 2018.
