Division of Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering (CEMSE)

Smart man-engineered environment is no longer the realm of science fiction. We are surrounded by intelligent machines that follow our algorithms and improve the quality of our life. We predict highly complex natural phenomena, such as climate, with mathematical models of ever-increasing accuracy. We use our understanding, translated in the form of mathematical computations, to design novel materials and to optimize important processes that help us resolve big issues such as availability of clean water and energy. Computer, electrical, and mathematical sciences and engineering are cornerstones of modern life, they help us ensure the continuity and sufficiency of the supply of water, food, energy in a sustainable environment; they drive our industrial production lines, they give us new materials for upcoming technologies and better healthcare. This is what CEMSE is for.

Research in the CEMSE division is driven by independent faculty labs and three research centers with which faculty can affiliate to perform applied, goal-oriented research. Centers affiliated with the division include:

  • Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC)
  • Extreme Computing Research Center (ECRC)
  • Visual Computing Center (VCC)

In addition, from time to time, the division undertakes special exploratory and collaborative research initiatives, currently in sensors and uncertainty quantification.
