Proposal for Major Field of Study (PMFS)
 

The Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) PhD program allows students to specialize at the doctoral level in a computation-related field of their choice through focused coursework and a doctoral thesis. Applications from candidates who have a strong foundation in core disciplinary areas of mathematics, engineering, physics, or related fields are strongly encouraged. While CSE students are encouraged to work with faculty from all MIT schools and departments, the CSE degree is currently awarded by one of the following five departments:

  • Aeronautics and Astronautics,
  • Chemical Engineering,
  • Civil and Environmental Engineering,
  • Mechanical Engineering, and
  • Nuclear Science and Engineering.

The specialization in computational science and engineering is highlighted by specially crafted thesis fields.  For more information about the CSE program and admission process, please explore the links on the left.
