Colloquium

Graduate Certificate in Computational Science & Engineering Colloquium

One of the graduate certificate requirements is for students to give a seminar on their dissertation research before graduation, typically in the last year once significant results can be reported. This research seminar occurs as part of a colloquium with other program participants and is organized by PICSciE.

Each research seminar is approximately 20 minutes in length with additional time for questions from the audience and is accessible to the broader University community with an interest in computational science and engineering. 

The University community is invited to participate as audience members in the colloquium. Students enrolled in the program are highly encouraged to attend.
