PhD in Scientific Computing
In addition to at least 21 credit units of course work, seminar, and research methods and ethic units, the PhD degree candidate must prepare and successfully defend a PhD thesis. Expected duration to complete the PhD Program is 8 semesters; the maximum duration is 12 semesters. However, students should complete course work including non-credit courses in 4 semesters. Advisor appointment has to be made at the 3rd semester. Each PhD degree candidate expected to follow one of the following specialized areas:
- Computational Finance;
- Computational Mathematics & Simulation;
- Data Science;
- Mathematical Modelling and Application;
- Operations Research.
It is expected that at least 4 of elective courses should be taken from followed specialized area. The list of elective courses is not limited to the list given, and the list is expanded on a continuing basis; courses outside the list can be accepted as electives subject to approval by the student's adviser.
* For students who did not take MSc degree in Scientific Computing Programme, student's adviser recommends to take programmes' compulsory courses (IAM 561-562-566-572) instead of the elective courses according to student's background.
