In the July issue of the Journal of Computational Science you'll find a new article authored by several of the faculty in the School of Computer Science at the University of Guelph.

The article - A new Canadian interdisciplinary Ph.D. in computational sciences - outlines the rationale and characteristics of the new Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Computational Sciences. The program has been designed around the need to develop doctoral candidates who can solve real-world problems by bringing together expertise in multiple domains. This unique Ph.D. opportunity will

  • pair students with expertise from the SoCS and from academic units from the Ontario Veterinary College, the College of Arts, the College of Business and Economics, the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences, and the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences,
  • provide students from non-computer science disciplines with flexibility to access the degree program,
  • allow students to complete their degree in 9 semesters, and
  • allow the students and their advisory committee to develop a program of study that most fits their area of study.

For more information about the program, you can access the full article by clicking here.
