The Certificate is valuable to applied mathematicians, engineers and computational physicists find solutions to problems in diverse areas such as material science, medical applications, energy engineering and astronomy.
Examples of real-world applications include:
- Material science engineers produce and process new high tech materials use computational mathematical modeling to analyze and predict complex material behavior with micro and nano structures.
- Science emerged as the interplay between theory and experiment, but increasingly computational modeling helps by simulating experiments, which cannot be done or are too expensive or not safe. For example, computational mathematical modeling and simulation studies are increasingly accepted by the food and drug administration for device development and to decide if a medical device is safe.
- Advances in sensor technology generate large amounts of data, which can be utilized to help improve mathematical models. This approach calls for advanced computational and statistical methods.
