CSE GRADUATE & POST-GRADUATE
CERTIFICATE PROGRAM



:: Graduate Certificate Program Application Form (for students currently working towards a Master's of Ph.D. degree)

:: Post-Graduate Certificate Program Application Form (for persons already holding a Ph.D.degree)


 

 

GRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

The CSE Graduate Certificate is available to Master's or Ph.D. students currently enrolled in one of the participating departments.

Course of Study
The Master's or Ph.D. degree with a certificate in Computational Science & Engineering requires the two-course sequence
CS/Math 471 Introduction to Scientific Computing and CS442/ECE432 Introduction to Parallel Processing. Students must also meet all degree requirements of their home department. At least one member from the Associated Faculty must be on a students Master's or Ph.D. committee, and a thesis must contain a significant computational component.

 

Under no circumstances can courses be substituted!

The Master's Degree requires an additional 6 credit hours from the approved list of CSE electives or 3 additional hours from the approved list of CSE electives and a thesis.

The Ph.D. degree requires an additional 9 credit hours from the approved list of CSE electives. CSE students from the Computer Science Department will be required to complete at least 2 CSE electives in an application area, or, for Master's students electing the thesis option, one CSE elective must be in an application area and the thesis must have a significant applied-computing component. All Ph.D. CSE students will be required to take at least 1 CSE elective from outside their home department.

 

Prerequisites

  • A bachelor's degree in engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics, or a scientific discipline.
    Students from other disciplines will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Acceptance into a qualifying graduate program at UNM.
  • One year of general college physics or chemistry.
  • One year of differential/integral calculus, a course in multivariable calculus, a course in differential equations, and a course in linear algebra.
  • A course in computer programming (either FORTRAN, C, or C++) or equivalent experience. It is required that a second course on the level of CS 251 be completed, or equivalent experience demonstrated, as prerequisite to CS442/ECE432.

 

Application Process

Complete and submit the CSE Graduate Application Form. Once you have been notified by the Faculty Program Coordinator that you have been accepted to the program, you are required to print out a hard copy of the official UNM Application Form, complete it in it's entirety and submit to Attn: Dr. Susan R. Atlas, CARC, MSC01 1190.

 

POST-GRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

The Post-Degree certificate in Computational Science & Engineering certifies the satisfactory completion of approved coursework and a project in high-performance computing, under the direction of a member of the Associated Faculty from a participating department.

 

Prerequisites

  • A Ph.D. degree in a mathematical, scientific, or engineering discipline.
  • Official enrollment at UNM and acceptance into a qualified graduate program. Non-degree status is acceptable. However, for the certificate to be posted on the transcript a student must be admitted to a participating department. Consult the UNM Office of Graduate Studies for additional information.

 

Course of Study

The Post-Degree Certificate in Computational Science & Engineering requires:

  1. The two course sequence CS/Math 471 Introduction to Scientific Computing and CS442/EECE432 Introduction to Parallel Processing
  2. Completion of an additional 9 credit hours of courses from the approved list of CSE electives
  3. Completion of an advanced computation project (minimum of 3 credit hours), under the direction of one of the Associated Faculty, and presented upon completion at an open forum.

 

Under no circumstances can courses be substituted!

 

Application Process

Complete and submit the CSE Graduate Application Form. Once you have been notified by the Faculty Program Coordinator that you have been accepted to the program, you are required to print out a hard copy of the official UNM Application Form, complete it in it's entirety and submit to Attn: Dr. Susan R. Atlas, CARC, MSC01 1190.
