Master in Computational science

Would you like to confront a tornado in virtual reality and predict its intentions? Or understand the behaviour of financial markets? What if you could simulate the outcome of a surgical procedure before it is put into practice? Or predict how a crowd would move in the event of a disaster?

Computational science is a discipline that has established itself as the third pillar of modern science (alongside theoretical and experimental science), and involves the modelling, simulation and analysis of world phenomena through computation. This has opened up new windows onto the physical and social sciences, earth sciences and life sciences at many levels of scale.
