Research and Career in Computational Science and Engineering

Wednesday, 29 November, 2017 - 18:30 - 19:30
Seminar Type: 
Career Talk
Speaker Name: 
Dr. Kwai L. WONG
University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory

In this talk, I will introduce the Research Experiences for Undergraduates program (REU) at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) at the University of Tennessee/Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The REU program focuses on research projects in computational science and engineering (CSE) which has become an indispensable domain subject in many cross-disciplinary social and scientific research frontiers. I will conclude this talk with an overview of graduate programs in CSE and its career path forward in the US as the demand in workforce with CSE knowledge increases.
