Computational Science, an interdisciplinary field that melds basic sciences, mathematical modelling, quantitative analysis techniques and High-performance Computing (HPC) techniques, is proving integral in addressing the big problems in industries ranging from manufacturing and aerospace, to drug design and risk management. With the advances in HPC and with the advent of Data Science there is a clear and recognized need of researchers and scientists to further develop their skills and in particular: mathematical skills, problem solving and analytical skills.
