Computational Physics

The Department of Physics offers a BS degree in physics with a concentration in computational physics: the study and implementation of numerical analysis to solve problems in physics. Computation is an integral part of modern science and engineering that is regarded as the third pillar of science along with experimentation and theory. Students will take a three-course sequence at introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels on scientific computing and computational modeling as applied to physical systems. Students successfully completing the concentration may purse graduate study or career paths in diverse areas including in scientific computing, information technology and applied engineering, and of course, physics.

Interested physics majors in good academic standing shall declare their intention in the concentration by completing the concentration declaration form prior to spring of their junior year.
