The mission of the Department of Scientific and Engineering Simulation is to study challenging fundamental problems in science and engineering by high performance computers, to develop consolidated system embodying physical and semantic contents of information, to apply to more complex engineering and environmental problems, and also to develop highly advanced software technology. The Department consists of the following three Fields: Computational Applied Sciences, Computer Science and System Engineering, and Simulation in Civil Engineering and Architectural Systems. Students are to learn theoretical backgrounds, to acquire software skills and to work closely with staff members from different fields of the Department.

Introduction to Fields

Computational Applied Sciences

Scope of field of computational applied sciences includes all the numerical approaches for a wide range of engineering phenomena. Students must learn advanced mathematics and physics to model those phenomena, and study numerical algorithms for accurate and efficient computations, techniques of large-scale simulation, and huge data visualization suited to supercomputers and Grid-computation environment.

Key Words:
Molecular and Atomistic Simulations, Large-scale Computations, Multiagent and Cellular Automata Simulations, Probabilistic Simulations, Data Mining, Statistical Physics for Nonlinear and Nonequilibrium Systems

Computer Science and System Engineering

The field of Computer Science and System Engineering offers an advanced curriculum on various research fields of energy system, electric and mechanical system, computer network system, and multi-media information system. The aim of the field is to encourage talent who can flexibly solve multiple issues and create sustainable, secure and amenity society by applying the system and the information technology.

Key Words:
Systems Control, Parallel/Distributed Processing, Multimedia Information System, Pattern Recognition, Energy Network

Simulation in Civil Engineering and Architectural Systems

The purpose of this field is to create new sense of value on the harmony of urban space and infrastructures and to make detail proposals, which in a sense is neglected for years, based on fundamental computer technology. Our research interests include disaster prevention, geotechnics, urban planning, architectural design, human space, urban transportation using advanced computer technology.
