Interdisciplinary school of scientific computing

The Interdisciplinary school of scientific computing which is located in University of Pune, was founded in 1994 with an intention to bridge the gap between pure sciences and computer science. It offers MSc in Scientific Computing formerly known as M.C.S. (Master of Computer science with specialization in scientific computing). There is hardly an area of science or engineering that does not use Computers for modeling. Some of the problems in these areas reduce to systems of differential or linear equations. These systems can be solved using numerical techniques which are more dependent on the system than the domain of the problem. As these systems come in all “sizes and shapes”, solving them stretches the available computer resources to their limits. Advanced visualization techniques are necessary for understanding the solution. Data mining relates to the extraction of information from large Chemical or Biological databases. All this has led to development of “Scientific Computing” as a discipline in its own right. Broadly the term refers to the application of computational techniques to address problems in the scientific domain.

Interdisciplinary School of Scientific Computing was founded in 1994 to address the issue of training and research in the field of Scientific Computing. It is a unique school of its kind in the country and one of the few schools in the world. M.Sc. (Scientific Computing) programme attempts to strike a balance between training in Sciences and Computer Science. It emphasizes on fundamentals of a subject and prepares students to absorb specific technologies when required. School has an interdisciplinary M.Phil. and Ph.D. programme in Scientific Computing. Students from science and related faculties (like Engineering, Medicine, etc.) willing to do computational work can register for M.Phil. or Ph.D. degree.

Technovation

Technovation is an annual science and technology festival of Interdisciplinary school of scientific computing, University of Pune. Technovation consists of several competitions and seminars by renowned experts. Technovation provides a platform for a confluence of students, academia and the industry.
