Computational and Data Science, Ph.D.

The Ph.D. in Computational and Data Science is an interdisciplinary program that includes faculty from Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Technology, Geosciences, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics and Astronomy.

The program is research-intensive and applied in nature, seeking to produce graduates with competency in the following three key areas:

  • Mastery of the mathematical methods of computation as applied to scientific research investigations coupled with a firm understanding of the underlying fundamental science in at least one disciplinary specialization.
  • Deep knowledge of programming languages, scientific programming, and computing technology so that graduates can adapt and grow as computing systems evolve
  • effective written and oral communication skills so that graduates are prepared to assume leadership positions in academia, national labs, and industry.

The Ph.D. in Computational and Data Science program is designed for students who are working toward their doctoral degrees. However, with a few extra courses and requirements, most students in the program can complete a master's degree in mathematics, Computer Science, or Data Science before they graduate.

Assistantships

Research and teaching assistantships, with stipends beginning at $20,100, are available on a competitive basis to full-time students in the COMS program. In addition to the stipend, the university also pays all tuition and most fees for assistantship holders. Non-Tennessee residents who are awarded a graduate assistantship are not required to pay out-of-state fees. To learn more about the types of graduate assistantships and to download an application, visit the Graduate Studies Assistantship page.

The College of Graduate Studies also awards a limited number of scholarships. For additional information and applications, visit the Graduate Studies Finance page.

In addition to assistantships and scholarships, MTSU's Office of Financial Aid assists graduate students seeking other forms of financial support while in school.

Research in Computational and Data Science

Computation is now regarded as an equal and indispensable partner, along with theory and experiment, in the advance of scientific knowledge. Numerical simulation enables the study of complex systems and natural phenomena that would be too expensive or dangerous, or even impossible, to study by direct experimentation. The quest for increasing levels of detail and realism in such simulations requires enormous computational capacity, and has provided the impetus for dramatic breakthroughs in computer algorithms and architectures. Due to these advances, computational scientists can now solve large-scale problems that were once thought intractable.

Computational Science is in a rapidly growing multidisciplinary area with connections to the sciences, mathematics, and computer science. The program focuses on the development of problem-solving methodologies and robust tools for the solution of scientific problems.

The Computational and Data Science (COMS) program is a broad multidisciplinary area that encompasses applications in science, applied mathematics, numerical analysis, and computer science. Computer models and computer simulations have become an important part of the research repertoire, supplementing (and in some cases replacing) experimentation. Going from application area to computational results requires domain expertise, mathematical modeling, numerical analysis, algorithm development, software implementation, program execution, analysis, validation, and visualization of results. The COMS program comprises all of the above.

MTSU’s program and research includes elements from computer science, applied mathematics, and science. The COMS program focuses on the integration of knowledge and methodologies from all of these disciplines, but is also distinct from the rest.

It is hard to capture how broad the program is without looking at some of the publications recently submitted. They are from across virtually every discipline. However, the common theme is the use of computers to solve cutting-edge scientific problems.
