About Us

MIT’s Center for Computational Science and Engineering (CCSE) was established in 2008. The broad mission of the CCSE is to support computational engineering. The center is comprised of faculty and research partners from across the School of Engineering, as well as other departments and units involved in computational engineering education and research around the Institute.

Our computational engineering (CE) focus is on computational approaches for engineering problems: the formulation and implementation of new approaches that are more efficient and capable; and the informed application of existing approaches to important engineering questions. Our emphasis is on the development of the “next generation” of CE innovators and CE innovations.
