Objective

The Ph.D. program in Computational Analysis and Modeling is an interdisciplinary doctoral degree program with participation from the College of Engineering and Science, the College of Business, and the College of Applied and Natural Sciences.

The program is intended to produce professionals who have a firm grasp of the fundamentals of mathematical modeling; who have the expertise to implement, analyze, and evaluate such models using state-of-the-art computing environments and advanced visual data analysis techniques; and who have made a cutting-edge contribution to some technical area associated with the program.

Objectives

The objectives of this interdisciplinary program are

  1. To train graduate students in experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects of research in molecular biology, chemistry, and physics, particularly where these disciplines intersect.
  2. To enhance interdisciplinary applied research at Louisiana Tech University in micro and nanotechnology, including molecular biology and protein engineering.
  3. To prepare graduate students for the next generation of careers in science and technology by offering a unique, flexible, and highly marketable graduate degree.
  4. To prepare graduate students for interdisciplinary or traditional PhD programs in biochemistry, chemistry, materials science, molecular biology, and physics which emphasize research at the intersections of one or more of the traditional disciplines.
