College of Science

Center for Simulation and Modeling
(formerly known as Computational Materials Science Center)

Center for Simulation and Modeling - George Mason University

The  Center for Simulation and Modeling (CSM),   College of Science collaborating with the Volgeneau School of Engineering,  George Mason University (GMU) .

Researchers in the CSM focus on the discovery, interpretation, prediction, modeling, simulation, and organization of the microscopic interactions between atoms and molecules in condensed phases of matter and beyond. The Center emphasis is the development of the next generation of atomistic and quantum models for simulation of matter, including biomaterials, soft and hard materials. The ability to predict properties of matter is a fundamental requirement of technological advances and economic competitiveness.

The Center promotes the Mason Nanotechnology Initiative  and supports academic programs that include fundamental science that relates to technologies affecting the future of new materials, biotechnology and health care (especially drug delivery at the nano scale), and device science. The Center members provide academic support to several doctoral programs including the  Modeling and Simulation emphasis of the Computational Sciences and Informatics (CSI) doctorate program administered by the Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS) .
