Computational Physics/Physics BS/MS

This degree program, offered jointly by the Department of Physics and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, makes it possible to pursue a number of career options. Graduates who pursue careers in physics education find that they are well prepared to use computers in the classroom and the teaching laboratory and to develop educational software.

The BS in Computational Physics combines requirements from the BS in Physics and the BS in Computer Science. It is overseen by the Department of Physics and designed for students who are interested in applying advanced computer-based techniques to physics research, or who wish to develop technical software. The program is such that students can pursue a graduate degree in either physics or computer science. This 5–year program allows students to obtain a BS in Computational Physics and an MS in Physics.

This degree program, offered jointly by the Department of Physics and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, makes it possible to pursue a number of career options. Students who pursue careers in computational physics find that they are well prepared to develop computational tools for a wide variety of disciplines.
