Graduate Program in Computational Modeling of the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG).
The Master's course  PPGMC  began operating from the second half of 2006. The same was originally characterized as a distinct interdisciplinary course due to the formation of their teachers, which included doctors in engineering, mathematics, physics, computer science and oceanography and audience seeking answers, supplying a demand for a master's degree graduates who could have as tickets coming from the mechanical engineering courses, civil and computing, mathematics and physics  FURG as well as related areas of courses in other universities in the region.
Despite the diversity of the faculty, the course of action that united all researchers is scientific computation, which was the focus of studies of teachers, especially computing group, and a key tool in the research of others, thus justifying the creation of a post interdisciplinary graduate program of as an area of ​​concentration computational modeling.
