Are you excited by the idea of working on cutting-edge scientific research? Do you enjoy collaborating on projects and working with a team? If so, you should consider adding a minor in computational science to your bachelor’s degree.
The term computational science (distinct from computer science) refers to the use of computation to solve problems in the sciences. Most research conducted in the sciences either uses or is guided by technology and mathematics. Consequently, the most effective research teams of the future will be composed of scientists who are aware of computational techniques, together with computation experts who have a basic understanding of the science behind the project.
