Recently Formed PhD Program at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

We would like to raise awareness of UMass Dartmouth’s recently formed Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) PhD program.

The CSE PhD program offers an excellent opportunity for students interested in an interdisciplinary program spanning applied mathematics, astrophysics, gravitational physics, large-scale simulation, and high-performance computing. Participating departments include Physics, Mathematics, Computer and Information Science, and Engineering. The CSE PhD program was created in 2011 and last year graduated its first class. We are committed to growing our PhD program with excellent students seeking an interdisciplinary, computationally-based research and educational experience.

Gravitational physics and computational astrophysics groups include faculty members Scott Field, Dana Fine, Robert Fisher, Jong-Ping Hsu, David Kagan, Gaurav Khanna, and Richard Price.

Funding is available on a competitive basis via university fellowships, research and teaching assistantships. Deadline for full consideration for Fall 2017 admission is February 15th. Interested students are encouraged to contact Gaurav Khanna (gkhanna[AT] for more information.
