The Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research is the hub for computational scientific activity at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, located in North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. UMassD is the premier university of the scenic Southcoast region of Massachusetts.
The Center faculty represent the Departments of Physics, Mathematics, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer and Information Science, and Fisheries Oceanography. The Center investigates modern research problems spanning algorithms, modeling, and prototyping in the fields of engineering, physics, and mathematics.
The Center was established in the Fall of 2012, and aims to promote and conduct high-level interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in scientific computing and to mentor students -- undergraduate and graduate -- with interests in scientific computing in a supportive, broad, and deep interdisciplinary research environment. The major goals of the Center are
- to promote internationally-recognized computational research that advances the fields of modern applied science, data-driven algorithms, and visualization and imaging techniques
- to educate and mentor the next generation of researchers in the computational sciences
- to provide focus and support for scientific computing at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
