Graduate Certificate in Scientific Computing
University of Florida

Program Details

The online Graduate Certificate in Scientific Computing program emphasizes areas of complex multiscale multidisciplinary problems and their resolution by computation.  The curriculum allows modern engineers and scientists to simultaneously learn how to effectively perform large-scale scientific simulations; manage and analyze voluminous datasets; identify key quantities of ultimate significance to final decision; reduce the voluminous data to focus on these key quantities; rigorously establish uncertainties in the prediction of the key quantities; and evaluate probabilistic risks and rewards involved in the final decision making.  Students can choose from courses such as:

  • Software Engineering
  • Software Testing and Verification
  • Probabilistic and Stochastic Methods in Civil Engineering
  • Programming Language Principles
  • Statistical Decision Theory


  • Bachelor of Science degree in engineering, science, technology, or a closely related discipline
  • 3.0 undergraduate GPA, or a minimum of five years of professional employment experience in an engineering discipline
  • Official transcripts from all colleges previously attended
