Computational Science and Engineering​ is an area of study within the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Prospective students apply through GSAS; in the online application, select  “Engineering and Applied Sciences” as your program choice and select "SM ME Computational Science and Engineering​" in the Area of Study menu.

Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) is an exciting and rapidly evolving field that exploits the power of computation as an approach to major challenges at the frontiers of natural and social science and all engineering fields. Sitting at the intersection of computer science and applied math, the master’s program offers students experience with mathematical techniques for modeling and simulation of complex systems; parallel programming and collaborative software development; and methods for organizing, exploring, visualizing, processing, and analyzing very large data sets.
