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.
UT Hires Next Director of No. 1 Ranked Computational Institute
Karen E. Willcox, co-director of the Center for Computational Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been selected as the new director of the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at The University of Texas at Austin. Her appointment begins Aug. 1.
Willcox will also hold the W.A. "Tex" Moncrief Jr. Endowment in Simulation-Based Engineering and Sciences Chair No. 5, and she will join the university’s Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics as a tenured professor. Read more.

Tailoring Cancer Treatment to Individual Patients
Attempts to eradicate cancer are often compared to a "moonshot" — the successful effort that sent the first astronauts to the moon.
But imagine if, instead of Newton's second law of motion, which describes the relationship between an object's mass and the amount of force needed to accelerate it, we only had reams of data related to throwing various objects into the air. Read more.

Trickle-down is the Solution (to the Planetary Core Formation Problem) says ICES research published by prestigious PNAS
Scientists have long pondered how rocky bodies in the solar system—including our own Earth—got their metal cores. According to new ICES research, evidence points to the downwards percolation of molten metal toward the center of the planet through tiny channels between grains of rock. Read more.
