We take the time to customize your curriculum by tailoring the course offerings to match your computational experience,
foundation and future career goals. The MSU CME graduate program features many accomplished academic leaders who are
eager to share their extensive range of expertise and insights gained from successful research accomplishments and
enlightened experiences.

The programs of study listed below are for illustration purposes only! Actual programs of study are strongly influenced
by each student's background in and pre-requisite knowledge of the three areas of emphasis: high-performance computing,
numerical mathematics and the engineering application area. Each program of study is customized to the needs of the
individual student, and is finalized with the assistance of the CME coordinator, the student's major professor,
and the student's graduate committee.
