McMaster School of Computational Engineering and Science

In 2005, the McMaster School of Computational Engineering and Science was the first program launched in Canada dedicated in developing expertise in the third wave of scientific research involving simulation, modeling and optimization. The new school brings together 50 faculty from engineering, science, business and health science to collaboratively conduct research and advance education.

The three major research thrusts of the school are:

  • Computational Physical Sciences
  • Computational Optimization, Design and Control
  • Computational Biosciences

Activities cover a broad spectrum of research areas representing current interdisciplinary activities, future areas that involve existing, but as yet untapped potential, as well as areas to be developed by future appointments.


  • Programs 1
  • Facilities and Departmental Affiliations 2
    • Affiliated Laboratories 2.1
  • Notes and references 3


The school offer programs at the Master, (M.Eng., M.Sc., M.A.Sc.) with coursework project or thesis. Ph.D. and postdoctoral levels. These will be of an interdisciplinary nature including core courses at the Masters level and module-based topic courses at all levels. Programs are currently being reviewed by the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies and approval is pending. Approval is anticipated in early 2006 with programs beginning in September.
