In the fast-changing modern world, mathematical modeling and computer
simulation (M&S) have emerged as a discipline that is absolutely vital not
only for conventional sciences and engineering, but also for
inter-/multi-disciplinary enterprises involving humanities and social
sciences, governance and policy making, etc. In fact, it is practically
impossible for a modern day multi-disciplinary enterprise to progress
without the aid of mathematical modeling and computing.
Vision of CMS
The Centre for Modeling and Simulation (CMS), Savitribai Phule Pune
University (SPPU), was established in 2003 with a vision to
promote awareness about M&S;
encourage and practice multidisciplinary problem-centric approaches to
basic and applied research that transcend traditional boundaries
separating knowledge domains; and
nurture and maintain fundamental methodological and technological
expertise related to M&S, including applied mathematics, applied
statistics, computing, computing technologies, and mathematical modeling.
True to the experientially vindicated vision of cutting across knowledge
domains, the Centre designed and deployed (2008) a highly
multi-disciplinary rigorous academic programme called the M.Tech. Programme
in Modeling and Simulation. The programme, right at its inception,
anticipated emerging fields such as computational fluid dynamics, machine
learning, analytics, and data science, and has been preparing students to
take up careers in these fields. The academic environment at the Centre is
conscientiously student-friendly and academics-centric so as to promote
and facilitate true learning and the development of fundamental qualities
of the mind that give a student an edge in the competitive world outside.
Areas of Expertise
Currently, the Centre possesses expertise in areas of machine learning,
data-intensive and statistical science (computational archeology,
astrostatistics, network science), computational materials modeling and
physics, scientific and numerical computing, computational fluid dynamics,
industrial and applied Mathematics, and digital signal+image processing.
