Educational NASA Computational and Scientific Studies (enCOMPASS) is an educational project of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center aiming at bridging the gap between computational objectives and needs of NASA's scientific research, missions and projects and academia's latest advances in applied mathematics and computer science. enCOMPASS achieves this goal via bidirectional collaboration and communication between NASA and academia. This project started from October 2010 and is currently being developed.

The project consists of several computational case studies based on NASA science applications in Earth Sciences, Planetary Sciences, and Astrophysics designed for graduate and undergraduate students in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. University professors in computational sciences can use these case studies as class projects. If you are a professor who can benefit from this project, please contact us, to receive data sets, evaluation forms for each case study, and more information.

NASA scientists and engineers can benefit from this project by receiving different computational approaches to their proposed computational problems from academia. If you are a NASA scientist or engineer whose project requires design and development of a computational algorithm to proceed further, we can help you. We will formulate a case study based on your project containing a brief introduction of your science area, project, terminologies used, and the proposed problem. Then, the case study will be given as an assignment or course project either to an intern on center, or students taking relevant courses in universities. Finally, the results of their research and development will be provided to you. If you are a NASA scientist or engineer interested in collaborating with enCOMPASS to advance your scientific research please contact us.
