The Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering is engaged with over 60 faculty from 20-plus departments throughout Stanford, which provides a unique opportunity to see how computational mathematics, data science, scientific computing, and related fields are applied across a wide range of domains.
A Center Of Collaboration
ICME Affiliated Faculty represent all nine Engineering departments and work with ICME students in fluid dynamics, design, molecular dynamics, ocean flows, groundwater simulation, graph theory and network algorithms, graphics, parallel programming, and many other engineering problems.
From Fundamental to Applied
ICME has strong ties to departments outside the School of Engineering. Affiliated Faculty and students work with colleagues in Mathematics and Statistics on fundamental modeling approaches; in Chemistry on molecular dynamics; in Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences on complex problems arising in energy systems, seismic inversion, earthquake modeling and climate modeling; in Medicine on applications in computational surgery, bioinformatics, and genetics; with researchers at SLAC on radiation treatments; as well as with faculty in many other areas across Stanford.
Stanford has played a key role in the development of scientific computing, with a legacy that goes back to the 1950’s. A number of major contributors to this fundamentally important area have spent significant portions of their careers at Stanford.
