Abstract

We describe a new graduate course in scientific computing that was taught during Fall 2010 at Louisiana State University. The course was designed to provide students with a broad and practical introduction to scientific computing which would provide them with the basic skills and experience to very quickly get involved in research projects involving modern cyberinfrastructure and complex real world scientific problems. The course, which was taken by thirteen graduate students, covered basic skills, networks and data, simulations and application frameworks, scientific visualization, and distributed scientific computing. Notable features of the course include a modularized team-teaching approach, and the integration of national cyberinfrastucture with teaching.
