In many areas of science and engineering, computation has become an equal and indispensable partner, along with theory and experiment, in the quest for knowledge and the advancement of technology. Numerical simulation enables the study of complex systems and natural phenomena that would be too expensive or dangerous, or even impossible, to study by direct experimentation. Today, computational scientists and engineers are solving large-scale problems that were once thought intractable. Why should you introduce an undergraduate CSE program at your school? There are at least four fundamental reasons - each spelled out in this report.
