The purpose of the certificate is to broaden the scope of the typical disciplinary graduate student traning program. Students are encouraged to develop interdisciplinary and transferable sets of skills in their course work and research activities. The certificate program helps to guide students toward this broad view by requiring the completion of: a survey course (CNCS 201, Topics in Nonlinear and Complex Systems ); four courses from an approved list; and a Ph.D. dissertation on a topic in the domain of the Center. In addition, the student must have two members of the Center on her or his Ph.D. dissertation committee.
