Student Learning Outcomes for Computational Physics:

Students will be able to:

Technical Computing Skills

  • Process data
  • Represent data visually
  • Prepare professional documents and presentations

Computational Physics Skills

  • Translate a model into code
  • Choose scales and units
  • Subdivide a model into a set of manageable computational tasks 
  • Choose algorithms and computational tools
  • Debug, test, and validate code
  • Extract physical insight

The Computational Physics major provides baseline preparation either for graduate school or for the technical job market.

Computational Physics majors may substitute PHY 201  for one of their Natural and Physical Science Core courses. Engineering and Physics students must earn a C- or better in ALL prerequisite Engineering and Physics courses to continue in the major.
