Why study Computational Science and Ecology?

Would you like to model how the biosphere will respond to human pressures? Or simulate the effects of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide? What if you could create programs to aid better environmental management?

Computational Science is an interdisciplinary field which uses skills from mathematics and information technology to tackle real-world scientific problems which can only be solved through computation.

Ecology is the scientific study of how organisms interact with each other and their environments. Accurately modelling these interactions is essential for solving the environmental problems that face us in a new millennium.

In this dual major, you will learn to construct realistic mathematical models and simulations, perform quantitative analysis of scientific problems using computers, and develop skills to solve real challenges in ecology.
