Why should I do my M.Sc. in Computational Sciences if my B.Sc. is in ...?
Chemistry: Become a computational chemist. If you like physical chemistry, theory and computation better than labwork, this program allows you to fully focus on theory and simulation methods for molecular dynamics and quantum mechanics and the underlying computational and numerical methods.
Physics: Strengthen your profile as a computational physicist. You have a strong theoretical education, but now you would like to improve your computational skills, learn how to develop numerically robust and scalable algorithms and how to write good scientific software in teams. Scientifically, you can specialize in statistical mechanics and molecular dynamics, learn to apply quantum mechanics to molecules, or get started in the geosciences.
Computer Science and Engineering: You have a solid background in programming and computation, but you also find the natural sciences fascinating. Get started and learn how to transfer your computational skills to problems in Physics, Chemistry or Geosciences.
Mathematics: You have a solid background in mathematical theory, but you would like to learn more about modeling of real-world phenomena. Get started and learn how to apply sound mathematical methods to problems in Physics, Chemistry or Geosciences.
Geosciences: You have a solid education in geophysics or geography. Only very recently these fields have begun to fully embrace computational techniques for modelling and data analysis as cornerstones of up-to-date research. If you are interested in contributing to this exciting new research direction, pick up the necessary skills in mathematical modelling, complex data analysis, numerical mathematics and informatics in this Master program.
Atmospheric Sciences: You have successfully completed your studies of meteorology. For decades, computational models for weather forecasting and climate research have been strong drivers of supercomputer development. With computer architectures becoming ever more complex, these fields have seen rapid developments through interdisciplinary cooperations between meteorologists, climate researchers, computer scientists, and mathematicians. If you plan on contributing to these modern developments, this Master program will provide you with necessary skills in mathematical modelling, complex data analysis, numerical mathematics and informatics.
