Why study Computational Science and Microbiology?

Would you like to model how viruses such as HIV interact with the human body? Or simulate the spread of an infectious agent? What if you could track and prevent outbreaks of disease?

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.

Microbiology is the study of microscopic living organisms: bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and protozoa. Understanding these organisms is directly linked to the control and prevention of infectious diseases, and requires the ability to analyse large amounts of data and build models.

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 microbiology.
