Computer Science and Physics
Since the dawn of the computer age, Computer Science and Physics have been closely intertwined disciplines. Computational physics is now an established branch of physics, complementing experiment and theory, that develops and applies computer modeling approaches to the solution of a wide range of physical problems. At the same time, software development (e.g., for graphics and data mining applications) is increasingly inspired by physics. Computer modeling, including simulation and numerical analysis, is an essential component of modern research and development. Correspondingly, the demand is growing for scientists with multidisciplinary training that combines fundamental knowledge of physics and computer science with practical skills in programming and computation.
For individuals who
Have an interest in both physics and computer science. Want to take advantage of similar coursework between the two programs.
A dual degree program. A comprehensive STEM education.
- Application Developer
- Software Designer
- Web Designer
The Computer Science and Physics dual major program is designed to allow students to complete one degree and the core requirements of both majors. Graduates of the program will have a unique background qualifying them to work in industry or to pursue graduate studies in physics, computer science, engineering, or other technical fields.
