Computational Sciences is the department most recently created at INAOE. At the end of 1997, the Master's and Doctorate programs in Computational Sciences were developed and approved, beginning in August 1998. In 1999, the INAOE's Internal Advisory Council decided to create the Program in Computational Sciences, where researchers were located in Computing. In 2001, the Program became the Department of Computational Sciences due to the growth in researchers and students of the program.
