Computational science is a relatively young discipline in the modern world. Computational science involves modeling, simulation, and analyzing world phenomena through computing. Computational science will play an essential role in scientific discovery in the future because modern science has opened new windows into the physical and social sciences, earth sciences, and life sciences at various levels (atomic, nano, mezzo, and macroscopic scales). Computational science has several essential components, namely:

Understanding non-deterministic and chaotic natural phenomena that analytical methods cannot resolve
Understand the simulation process, which is a bridge between theory and experiment
Prediction or divination
Static and dynamic modeling systems
Calculation, organization, and presentation of data

Master Program in Computational Science at ITB will equip its graduates with the following:
  1. Ability to understand and develop modeling and simulation of problems in basic science, applied science, and mathematics.
  2. Ability to select and use the basic concepts and principles of science needed in modeling and simulating natural phenomena in solving problems and discovering new things.
  3. Ability to take an interdisciplinary approach to finding solutions to problems in science, technology, and mathematics.
  4. Ability to use optimization concepts and methods in finding solutions.
  5. Ability to understand and build efficient algorithms.
  6. Ability to build data relations, data mining, and data interpretation in big data problems.
  7. Ability to undertake developmental science, engineering, computer science, or a chosen field of mathematics.
  8. Ability to work together in teams with various scientific backgrounds and expertise.
  9. Ability to develop within workgroups through effective communication, lifelong learning, and upskilling using constantly evolving hardware and software.

Selected by ITB and Kanazawa University (Japan), students can participate in the Double Degree Master's Program in Computational Science at ITB and Kanazawa University. ITB students will spend up to one year at Kanazawa University conducting research under the supervision of ITB and Kanazawa University staff. Kanazawa University students also had the opportunity to conduct similar research at ITB. Kanazawa University staff will teach several courses at ITB either directly or by using distance learning facilities. In addition, the Master Program in Computational Science also has a double degree program with the University of Lleida, Spain, and collaboration with several other universities.

Career Prospect
Although the traditional labor force for graduates of this program is in the field of research and development (both at universities and research centers), graduates of this study program will have the skills and competencies to enter other fields of work such as insurance, banking, finance, information technology, telecommunications, the automotive industry, the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, as well as the oil and gas industry, particularly in the field of Data Science.
