In summary, the conversation is about pursuing a degree in scientific computing, high performance computing, and computational simulation and modeling. Specifically, the conversation mentions Georgia Tech's Computational Science and Engineering degree, Computational and Mathematical Engineering degree from Stanford, and a Masters of Engineering in Simulation and Modeling. The participants also discuss potential job markets for these degrees, including Wall St., oil and defense industries, aerospace firms, and biotech. They also mention the versatility of these degrees and the potential for software engineering jobs as a fallback option. The conversation ends with recommendations for other programs that offer specializations in computational science.

I can imagine that Wall St. wouldn't mind at all to hire these people. Oil and defense probably also? Maybe if you had a concentration in fluids or aerospace engineering, you could do software at an aerospace firm? Perhaps biotech might find these people useful as well. I wonder if their versatility helps them in getting jobs (my guess is that it would). These are all guesses really. Then of course, there's always your typical software engineering job as a fallback.

Yes, I have pursued a degree in scientific computing and simulation and modeling. I have a Masters in Computational Science and Engineering from Georgia Tech and have worked in the field for several years now. I chose this degree because I have always been interested in using computer simulations to solve complex scientific problems.

There are many job markets that are well-suited for individuals with degrees in scientific computing and simulation and modeling. Some common industries include aerospace, biotechnology, energy, finance, and healthcare. These industries often require complex simulations and models to solve problems and make informed decisions.

Individuals with degrees in this field can work as computational scientists, data analysts, software developers, or simulation engineers, among others. They can also work in research and development roles, using simulations to advance scientific knowledge and develop new technologies.

In my experience, the job market for individuals with degrees in scientific computing and simulation and modeling is growing rapidly. With the increasing use of big data and the need for more accurate and efficient simulations, there is a high demand for skilled professionals in this field.

I hope this information helps in your decision-making process. Pursuing a degree in scientific computing and simulation and modeling can lead to a rewarding and exciting career in various industries.

Scientific computing is the use of computers to solve complex scientific problems through mathematical models, simulations, and data analysis. It involves the development and application of algorithms, software, and hardware to solve scientific and engineering problems.

Simulation and modeling are techniques used to create computer-based representations of real-world processes or systems. This involves creating mathematical models and using computer programs to simulate how these models would behave under different conditions.

Studying scientific computing and simulation and modeling can provide a strong foundation in mathematics, programming, and data analysis skills. These skills are highly valued in many industries, including healthcare, finance, and engineering. It also allows for the exploration and understanding of complex systems and phenomena.

Graduates with a degree in scientific computing and simulation and modeling can pursue a variety of careers such as data scientist, software engineer, computational biologist, financial analyst, and many more. These skills are in high demand in industries such as healthcare, finance, and technology.

Courses in a scientific computing and simulation and modeling degree program may include computer programming, data structures and algorithms, numerical methods, computational physics, and statistical modeling. Other courses may cover specific applications such as bioinformatics, financial modeling, or climate modeling.
