ماذا سوف أتعلم؟

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program aims to help students develop the skills needed to identify issues related to Civil Engineering and the ability to formulate and propose solutions to a problem in an independent manner. A candidate for a PhD degree is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to the discipline.

Scientific Computation Concentration

Scientific computation is among the fastest-growing multidisciplinary research area and it serves as a bridge between the traditional domains of theoretical and experimental sciences. Computation research covers many areas in science and engineering. The multidisciplinary nature of computational science and its wide-ranging scope means that its training and research can best be integrated into different disciplines to equip students with a solid foundation of the knowledge in focused areas. This concentration is intended for research postgraduate students who are interested in pursuing research in computation related research. Students can enroll in a particular discipline for research with a special focus in Scientific Computation.

The Scientific Computation Concentration is open to research postgraduates in the School of Science and the School of Engineering.

The Scientific Computation Concentration is designed to equip students with a solid foundation of the knowledge in different disciplines with following research foci.
