What is PICS?
The Penn Institute for Computational Science (PICS) is a cross-disciplinary institute for the advancement, integration, and support of Penn research via the tools and techniques of high-performance computing. Because scientific computing stretches across all areas of science, engineering, medicine and increasingly the humanities, PICS impacts the entire university. PICS promotes research through a regular seminar series, an annual conference, by hosting joint research projects and through researcher and student training.
What PICS Offers:
PICS offers a Masters (MSE) of Scientific Computing that may be pursued as a stand-alone masters degree or in conjunction with PhD programs within the disciplines. It provides multifaceted graduate training in the fundamentals and applications of scientific computing through a comprehensive curriculum including numerical methods, algorithm development, high-performance computing, data science, and applications within the science and engineering.
PICS also offers a Certificate in Advanced Scientific Computing This certificate is open to all MSE and PhD students currently enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania. The Certificate can be completed in 1 year and all courses can count towards other majors and degree requirements.
PICS enables computational science research by providing an ongoing series of short technical “how to” workshops or bootcamps for Penn researchers and graduate students.
In conjunction with AMCS, PICS hosts several colloquium throughout the academic year featuring renowned scholars and experts from all over the globe.
Who Does PICS Work With:
PICS’ primary partner is The Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (AMCS) Graduate Group.
PICS provides an administrative home for interdisciplinary computation-centric projects that span across departments and/or schools. The PICS staff works with faculty to aid the preparation of group proposals, organizing meetings, working with business offices, and coordination of reports in support of sponsored research.
PICS advises the administration of schools and the university on issues related to computation-centric research. In addition, PICS works with campus computing organizations to improve campus computational and network infrastructure through advising and external grants for infrastructure enhancement.
