Computational Modeling & Data Analytics
Computational Modeling and Data Analytics
The Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA) program draws on expertise from three primary departments at Virginia Tech with strengths in quantitative science: Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science. By combining elements of these disciplines in innovative, integrated courses that emphasize techniques at the forefront of applied computation, we teach a rich suite of quantitative skills for tackling today's massive data-based problems.
What can you do with a CMDA degree?
The CMDA requirements give students the flexibility to dive deeply into a particular area through choice of electives, a disciplinary track, or a minor or double major. Ultimately, our program is for anyone who seeks to better understand the world through data and computation.
