Welcome to the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) at Stanford University. ICME was founded as an institute in 2004, and is the successor program to Scientific Computing & Computational Mathematics (SCCM), which was led by Gene Golub and Joe Oliger and founded in the late seventies.
At ICME, we work at the intersection of mathematics, computing and applications in engineering and the applied sciences:
- We collaborate closely with engineers and scientists to develop improved computational approaches and mathematical models. We help advance many engineering and scientific fields, such as fluid and solid mechanics, computer graphics, reservoir modeling, bio-engineering, uncertainty quantification, stochastics, optimization, financial mathematics and many more.
- We offer both MS and Ph.D. degrees. We attract outstanding graduate students with strong mathematical and computational skills. We currently have around 60 MS students and 65 Ph.D. students in our program. Our students are taught and advised by over 40 associated faculty, who represent 16 different departments in four schools on campus.
- We train students and scholars in mathematical modeling, scientific computing, and advanced computational algorithms. We offer a comprehensive suite of undergraduate and graduate service courses to the Stanford community in numerical methods, computing and applied mathematics. For our graduate students we also offer a strong core set of advanced courses that include theoretical and numerical differential equations, discrete mathematics, linear and nonlinear optimization, numerical linear algebra and stochastic methods.
We invite you to browse our faculty profiles, student research profiles, Ph.D. theses database, course offerings, as well as Computational Consulting, our free advice service for the Stanford research community.
