Location of Program
The Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) PhD program allows students to specialize at the doctoral level in a computation-related field of their choice through focused coursework and a doctoral thesis. Applications from candidates who have a strong foundation in core disciplinary areas of mathematics, engineering, physics, or related fields are strongly encouraged. While CSE students are encouraged to work with faculty from all MIT schools and departments, the CSE degree is currently awarded by one of the following six departments:
- Aeronautics and Astronautics,
- Chemical Engineering,
- Civil and Environmental Engineering,
- Mechanical Engineering, and
- Nuclear Science and Engineering.
