Why study Computational Science and Plant Science?

Would you like to model how biofuels can be effectively produced? Or simulate how specific plants will cope with drought, salinity or increased temperatures? What if you could produce healthier sugars, anti-cancer drugs and biodegradable plastics?

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.

Plant sciences address some of the greatest challenges facing humankind, contributing to a sustainable food supply, global warming reduction, and fossil-fuel alternatives. Plants are also being developed to produce industrial products, designer molecules, biopharmaceuticals and energy, and to decontaminate land and air.

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 real challenges in the plant sciences.
