BU receives IGERT award from National Science Foundation

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded an Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) grant to Boston University. The grant, which is for five years, is entitled Multidisciplinary Integration of High Performance Computing in Ph.D. Programs in Science and Engineering. IGERT is an NSF-wide program intended to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with the multidisciplinary backgrounds and the technical, professional, and personal skills needed for the career demands of the future. BU’s IGERT program will provide students who follow discipline-specific studies with a multidisciplinary program of training in computational science that will maximize their exposure to the cross-disciplinary nature of computational science and to its realm of industrial applications. BU’s IGERT grant investigators are Claudio Rebbi, a CAS professor of physics and director of the Center for Computational Science, David Coker, a CAS professor of chemistry, Roscoe Giles, an ENG professor of electrical and computer engineering and deputy director of the Center for Computational Science, Michael Caramanis, an ENG professor and associate chairman of the graduate program in manufacturing engineering, and Stephen Grossberg, a CAS professor and chairman of the department of cognitive and neural systems.
