Computational Visualization and Modeling

Computational science has been identified as an important interdisciplinary field, based on the development and routine use of sophisticated desktop computer hardware and software in many disciplines over the past decade. 

Computational visualization and modeling (CVM) is a minor for students who are interested in a study of the most important areas in computational science, namely techniques for visualization of information (data) and connections, as well as simulation and modeling of the real world, using a computer. Both of these rubrics provide new and powerful ways to ask questions, obtain fresh insights, and solve problems in many different fields including art, biology, chemistry, economics, environmental studies, and physics.
