Why study Computational Science and Zoology?
Would you like to model how environmental changes will affect animal evolution and diversity? Or simulate the development of an evolutionary lineage over time? What if you could create ways to efficiently categorise newly discovered organisms?
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.
Zoology is a branch of biology that deals with the scientific study of animals. Understanding animal evolution and diversity is fundamental to the field, and computational analysis provides insight into aspects including morphology, genetics, behaviour, ecology and biochemistry.
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 zoology.
