The Graduate Portfolio Program offers a cohesive course of study for graduate students seeking to enhance the statistical modeling component of their research and to prepare for successful careers upon graduation. Students must complete 12 semester hours of courses including an independent study and present their work at a semi-annual colloquium upon completion of the program.
Graduate Portfolio in Scientific Computation
The Graduate Portfolio Program offers a cohesive course of study for graduate students seeking to apply scientific computation tools to their research. Students must complete 12 semester hours of courses including an independent study and present their work at a semi-annual colloquium upon completion of the program.
Graduate level courses are offered throughout the year under the course code SDS. Short software courses (not for credit, typically three hours in length) are also offered periodically.
