Curriculum

We use a personalized curriculum to allow our diverse student body to obtain rigorous training at the intersection between computation and experiments. Depending on their undergrad background, and as early as in the first year, students can choose between different Core Curriculum courses (one in the Fall semester and at least two in the Spring semester). A number of Advanced Electives is offered in the second and third year of the program, although students are welcomed to take advanced electives in other training areas as well.
