Core courses

The Modelling and Computational Science graduate programs have the following three core courses:

  • MCSC6010G Mathematical Modelling;
  • MCSC6020G Numerical Analysis; and
  • MCSC6030G High-Performance Computing. 

MSc program requirements

Thesis option

  1. Successful completion of 30 credits, including six three-credit courses and a 12-credit thesis. The six three-credit courses must include the three core courses and three elective courses, and a minimum grade of B- must be achieved in each course. With approval from the student's Advisory Committee, at most one elective course may be a fourth-year undergraduate course not included in the list of graduate course electives (see course listing). At most, two of the electives may be courses either listed or cross-listed as undergraduate courses.
  2. Successful completion of the non-credit Graduate Seminar in Modelling and Computational Science course.

Course-based option

  1. Successful completion of 30 credits, including eight three-credit courses and a six-credit research project. The eight three-credit courses must include the three core courses and five elective courses, and a minimum grade of B- must be achieved in each course. With approval from the student's Advisory Committee, at most two elective courses may be fourth-year undergraduate courses not included in the list of graduate course electives (see course listings). At most two of the electives may be courses either listed or cross-listed as undergraduate courses.
  2. Successful completion of the non-credit Graduate Seminar in Modelling and Computational Science course.
