Computational Physics Concentration

Numerical Analysis

Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

Computational Physics uses formulas and algorithms to solve problems that cannot be easily analyzed through experimentation, or would be very time-consuming and difficult to perform by hand.

Computational Physics combines physics, computer science and applied mathematics in order to provide scientific solutions to realistic and complex problems. 

Skills learned in the Computational Physics Concentration are used in a variety of fields, including: 

  • Energy and Aerospace
  • Chemical and Pharmaceutical
  • Environmental Management
  • Scientific Software and Games
  • Academia
  • Business and Wall Street
  • Theoretical Physics

Why Study Physics at KWU?
