in the College of Engineering and College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. Graduate
students pursuing graduate study toward a master's or Ph.D. degree in one of the participating
science or engineering departments may elect this program in place of the traditional minor. [Note
that students wishing to earn a graduate degree in mathematics or computer science should
reference these departments' sections of the Graduate Catalog for details on options available in
computational mathematics and scientific computing.] To complete the program requirements, a
student must successfully complete a sequence of graduate-level applied mathematics and
computer science courses and, if a research dissertation is required, utilize advanced
computational techniques in the course of conducting the research.

The Computational Engineering and Sciences Program is designed to efficiently prepare graduate
students to undertake research utilizing scientific computing by combining course work in applied
mathematics and computer science in addition to course work in the traditional major. The
program recognizes that a new area of scientific pursuit, numerical simulation, has emerged as a
new paradigm for scientific inquiry complementing theory and laboratory experiment. Typical
areas of research include, but are not limited to, computational fluid dynamics, quantum chemistry
and atmospheric modeling. Admission to the program is gained after enrollment in the Graduate
School and the graduate program is underway. Program course requirements are selected from
applied mathematics and computer science courses listed elsewhere in this Graduate Catalog. To
facilitate the satisfaction of prerequisite requirements for graduate-level computer science courses,
CSC 489 is offered for graduate credit, combining the key contents of several undergraduate
courses. Typical courses that may be selected to satisfy this program's requirements include
advanced calculus, numerical analysis, numerical linear algebra for parallel architectures,
stochastic simulation, computer operating systems, digital systems architecture, computer
graphics, compiler construction, software engineering, and design and analysis of algorithms.

The plant physiology program is an interdepartmental offering. Although not a formal degree
program, students may elect to major or minor in the plant physiology program at both the M.S.
and Ph.D. levels. Students entering the program should have appropriate knowledge in plant
biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. Some formal training in genetics and statistics is
normally expected.

When majoring in plant physiology, sUidents will be closely affiliated with the same department as
their major professor. As such, they will be required to meet respective departmental requirements
for teaching, written and oral examinations, and seminar attendance. Departments currently
participating in this program are: biochemistry, botany, crop science, forestry, genetics,
horticultural science, plant pathology and soil science. The chair or co-chair of the student's
advisory committee must be a member of the Plant Physiology Faculty.

The purpose of the plant physiology curriculum is to ensure that students obtain substantive
understanding of the physiological processes controlling plant behavior. The course requirements
for graduate students are set by each graduate committee. Advanced knowledge is expected in
plant physiology, biochemistry, structure and function, and molecular biology. Acceptable
achievement most often occurs with successful completion of the following courses:

BO 751 Advanced Plant Physiology I

BCH 610N Special Topics: Regulation of Intermediary Metabolism in Eucaryotes

BO 780 Plant Molecular Biology

BO 590C Topical Problems; Plant Cell Biology

BO 795 Special Topics in Botany: Plant Form, Function and Development

The program is administered by the Plant Physiology Executive Committee. Additional
