The Master of Science degree in Computational Science (MCS) at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) offers students the opportunity to acquire an in-depth understanding and set of skills in computational science, numerical simulation, applied mathematics, statistics, and data science. It provides an innovative combination of methodological and applied competencies in both computational and data science, which endow students with the knowledge and skills that are needed to operate at the forefront of science and industry.
Computational Science is not to be confused with Computer Science, which deals with the science and engineering of computers. Computational Science represents a broader approach to interdisciplinary problems and projects, using computer simulations in model-based approaches that represent the interaction between theory and experiment.
