In this paper some developments in computational science and engineering are presented. It is observed that correct models are an essential prerequisite for this science and engineering discipline. In addition it is illustrated that the level of abstraction in these models is of crucial importance given the complex system study at hand. The influence of the computer technology on the models themselves is further discussed.
