Combine Physics with Computer Science and Mathematics

SRU's Computational Physics program prepares you to provide scientific solutions to complex problems

Physics: Computational Physics

Offered by: Physics

Computational Physics combines physics, computer science and applied mathematics in order to provide scientific solutions to realistic and often complex problems. Areas of application include the study biological systems, environmental modeling, the design of materials, nature of elementary particles, medical imaging, and energy management. A computational physicist understands not only the workings of computers and the relevant science and mathematics, but also how computer algorithms and simulations connect the two

Why Choose Computational Physics?

The recent and rapid developments in science and engineering have been driven by a dramatic increase in the power and use of computers. Yet too many science and engineering graduates do not have strong enough backgrounds in computation to take advantage of these recent developments, while many computer science graduates do not have the background in mathematics and science needed for technical fields. You will be able to enjoy careers involving high-performance computing and science, without having to choose between them.

What Will You Learn?

You will gain an in-depth and hands-on education in physics, other related sciences, mathematics, and computing, as well as valuable skills in complex problem-solving and team work.

Careers In Computational Physics

A degree in Computational Physics is an excellent springboard to careers in many related fields where computation plays key roles; oceanography, material science, computer science, applied mathematics, geophysics, medicine, or finance.
