Computational Sciences

The full name of the final degree is Doctor of Philosophy in Computational Sciences. The Computational Sciences program is offered by The Cyprus Institute’s Computational-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC). The program will educate students and carry out significant research in Computational Science with specialization in important fields that require High Performance Computing such as climate modeling, high-energy and nuclear physics, materials science, computational chemistry, 3D visualization and computational biology. More precisely, the program educates future researchers in mathematical modeling and computational methods and techniques needed to solve complex scientific and engineering problems, as well as in management and visualization of complex data sets.

The Cyprus Institute uses the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). Each course is worth 10 ECTS-credits. To satisfy the requirements of the PhD program, a student requires a total of 180 ECTS-credits, of which 50 ECTS-credits are from courses.

The program provides the necessary educational setting where excellence in education and research are fostered through interdisciplinary collaboration on regional problems of global significance.
