Why study Computational Science and Geographical Sciences?

Would you like to model how climate change has affected a region in the past and simulate how it may be affected in the future? What if you could predict the growth of cities and the movements of populations?

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.

Geographical Science investigates the spatial patterns of physical and human phenomena at local, national and global scales. It uses advanced technology to model and analyse patterns and processes in the physical world, and track human movements and land use.

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 the big issues of climate change and its impacts, water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, and planning for sustainable futures for the natural and built environments.
