Solving interdisciplinary problems from science and engineering using computer simulation
Today, many problems in science and engineering can only be tackled successfully by means of computer based simulation. Therefore, there is a big demand in both academia and industry for scientists and professionals who, beside domain expertise, have profound knowledge in numerical methods and computer science. They are interdisciplinary and application oriented and concentrate on problem solving taking by means of computer simulation. Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) involves mathematical modelling, the use of numerical methods for analyzing scientific problems and advanced software implementation. CSE is distinct from computer science, but also from traditional sciences that rely on theory and experiment. CSE responds to the emergence of computer simulation as a third way of gaining insight complementing theory and experiment.
