The CSE Master's degree is a joint program between the Colleges of Computing, Sciences and Engineering.
Georgia Tech’s Master’s degree in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) prepares students for careers in industry, government, and academia. Students will be well prepared for position in industry in areas such as engineering software systems, web technologies (e.g. search or analysis of social networks), software for consumer product and drug design, and financial engineering, to mention a few. Graduates will be well prepared for positions in government (e.g., national laboratories) and with government contractors in software and systems for modeling and simulation, systems integration, data mining and visualization, high performance computing, and computational modeling. Graduates will be well prepared for staff positions in academia involving research concerned with the development and application of computational models in engineering, the sciences, and computing.
The interdisciplinary CSE MS degree program is jointly offered by the colleges of Computing, Engineering and Sciences. Participating units from these colleges include the Schools of Aerospace Engineering, Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computational Science and Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics; the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering; and the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering.
The program is offered with the option to take portions, or in some instances, all of the coursework off-campus via Georgia Tech Professional Education; however, intake of new students is currently paused while we improve the educational experience through this option.
The curriculum has been structured to impart students with solid CSE foundational knowledge and skills, and includes technical specialization courses that enhance a student's domain expertise. Advanced elective courses will enable students to specialize in a domain and technical expertise focusing on their particular interests. The optional thesis portion of the program requires completion of an interdisciplinary research project. To explore the MS CSE program of study, please review the student handbook.
