Computational Physics

Are you good with computers?  Do you also have an interest in the physical world around you?  Combining these interests can lead to the concentration of Computational Physics.  Students in this major tackle the laws of the universe, using science and math to formulate and evaluate the models that describe them. Methods for attacking these difficult problems using computer simulations and other computational techniques are studied.  They study everything from classical and quantum theory to vector analysis and cosmology.

Graduates of this program are well prepared for graduate school.  They might try a graduate program in Physics or they might find something more directly suited for Computational Physics.  Their background is strong enough to be successful either way.  They also have strong computer skills and could go toward a career position in industry that involves computer applications.  

For more information, contact Dr. Jie Zou.
