Created in 2008, the MIT Center for Computational Science & Engineering (CCSE) is an educational and research-focused center in the MIT School of Engineering and will become a part of the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing. CCSE faculty and students focus on the development and application of new computational methods to solving important real-world problems in engineering and science.
The Center’s faculty and graduate students from across numerous MIT departments study these problems, creating novel tools, methods and algorithms for modeling, simulation and validation of theoretical understanding. Many enhance their research through experiments using massive data sets and powerful high-performance computational techniques. Over many decades, advances in computational science and engineering have resulted in more efficient aircraft, higher-density transistors on chips, more energy-efficient electronic devices, greater yield chemical and biological processes, cleaner power plants, higher resolution medical imaging and more accurate geophysical explorations, to name a few noteworthy outcomes. The departments represented in our Center include:
The Center has launched a program for companies with interests in building a working relationship with our research community through membership in the ccse.connect program. Benefits of membership in the program include facilitated introductions to CCSE researchers, opportunities to network with graduate students for internships and recruitment, access to student-run organizations and events, introductions to companies launched by CCSE community researchers and exclusive invitations to annual symposia, technical workshops and campus events.
