Campus Customers:

  • Mathematics—We are developing a set of new computational mathematics workshops jointly with the Mathematics Department. Topics include abstract algebra, number theory, and functional analysis, all in Sage.
  • Mechanical Science and Engineering—MechSE has involved CSE training programs with ME 412, Numerical Thermo-Fluid Mechanics as well as a 498 special topics course in computational mechanics software.
  • Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering—We have worked closely with NPRE to teach a MATLAB primer and refresher for incoming students as part of NPRE 100.
