The Departments of Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Earth Science, Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics,and Mechanical Engineering each offer an interdisciplinary master's and Ph.D. degree emphasis in computational science and engineering (CSE).

All students pursuing an emphasis in CSE must complete the requirements outlined below.

- Numerical Methods: (students must take at least three) ECE 210A-B-C-D (cross listed as ME 210A-B-C-D, Math 206A-B-C-D, CS 211A-B-C-D)
- Parallel Computing: Computer Science 240A
- Applied Mathematics: Students whose home department is not Mathematics must take either the Math 214A-B or Math 215A-B sequence or the Chemical Engineering 230A-B sequence (cross-listed as ME 244A-B). Credit will not be given for more than one of these sequences. Advanced courses may be substituted, with approval, as follows: Math 243A-B instead of Math 214A-B and Math 246A-B instead of Math 215A-B. Students whose home department is Mathematics must take a two course sequence from either Math 243A-B or Math 246A-B.

Requirements for the M.S. in one of the above departments (thesis option only) with the CSE emphasis are as follows:

- Complete the requirements for an M.S. in the chosen department
- Complete the CSE core course sequence
- Write and defend a master's thesis in CSE

The thesis must be written under the supervision of a CSE ladder faculty member from the chosen department. The thesis committee must include a minimum of three permanent ladder faculty members, at least two from the chosen department and one from CSE (may be CSE faculty member from another department.)

Students pursuing a Ph.D. with an emphasis in CSE must:

- Complete the requirements for a Ph.D. in the chosen department
- Complete the CSE core course sequence
- Write and defend a dissertation in CSE

The student's dissertation must be written under the supervision of a CSE ladder faculty member from the chosen department. The doctoral examination committee must include at least one CSE ladder faculty member and at least one ladder faculty member from another department.

*** Students must petition with the Graduate Division to add the CSE emphasis to their current degree. Fill out the Change of Degree Status Petition Form and return to the Graduate Division with the filing fee.
