I'm student of computer science (BS) and considering computational science as the field to major in for MS program.
I have two questions which might look silly but I'm really confused:
1- Are Scientific Computing and Computational Science fields the same?. In Iran we just have Scientific Computing as an MS program in computer science. After searching for days in Google I saw there were some websites stating that Scientific Computing and Computational Science are the same...
2- Is Computer Science a good major to enter computational science?. We have many courses in Numerical Mathematics, Algorithms, and Programming in CS but it seems like you need good background in physics or chemistry. I feel that it's a major for Mechanical engineers or physicists.
