CSE is well-established as a discipline in its own right with research centers, departments, and education programs around the world. We are now witnessing how CSE forms a new platform for great scientific progress.

Example of a CSE program developmentSciCompMaster Program at KTH, Sweden
  • 1990 Specialization within the Engineering Physics Program initiated by prof Germund Dahlquist with courses taken from existing curriculum
  • 1997 International Master Program 1.5 years initiated by prof Björn Engquist with courses specially designed for SciComp
  • 2006 Bologna process: Program extended to 2 years
  • 2006 First attempt to make an Erasmus Mundus program together with Delft, Berlin and Erlangen
  • 2007 Specializations within the Program introduced: CFD and Biocomputing
  • 2008 Double degree Program with University of Erlangen: one year at each university gives double degrees
  • 2008 Plans to start a Bachelor program in SciComp at KTH

Important with a research environment: At KTH we have PDC, KCSE

and CIAM

cse education how and when did it start in europe
CSE education: how and when did it start in Europe?
  • Around 1970 and later research institutes in applied and industrial mathematics were founded. Education in what was to become CSE started at a few technical universities.
  • In 1980 Univ of Kaiserslautern started a Diploma program in Techno-Mathematics
  • In 1986 ECMI – European consortium for mathematics in industry was established with a.o. education in industrial mathematics at Master level.
  • In 1997 three CSE International Master programs started in Europe:

1) Erlangen/Nuremberg, 2) ETH, 3) KTH

  • Around 2005 the Bologna system 3+2+3 started at most universities in EU. CSE Master programs become more and more frequent.

Universities in Europe offering Master degree in CSE and/or Comp X

There is a listing of universities in the US giving undergraduate and/or graduate CSE-type programs: in session MS16 by Charles Swansson.

erasmus mundus
Erasmus Mundus

A European educational organization for creating excellent

clusters of universities offering Master and PhD programs.

Started in 2004.

Less than 10% of the applications get through.

Attractive since scholarships are given to those students who

are accepted.

Today two programs (of about 100) are of CSE-type:

Industrial Mathematics: Eindhofen, Kaiserslautern, Linz

Computational Mechanics: Barcelona, Swansea, Stuttgart,

Nantes

future development of cse graduate education in europe
Future development of CSE graduate education in Europe
  • Global competition from US, East Asia and other upcoming countries
  • The CSE education should be based on expertize involving both bredth and depth, e.g. by combining skills from several universities and/or research centra:

- educational networks

- double degree programs

- Erasmus Mundus cluster programs

  • Recognize CSE as an independent discipline and

organize departments where competence from all CSE

fields are gathered to a group with enough ”critical mass”
