Bachelors of Science in

Physics (Computational Physics)

Computational Physics extends theoretical Physics beyond the limitation of analytical techniques. This extension has become essential to advance in many different sub-fields of Physics as systems of interest have become complex, moving from a few degrees of freedom to many degrees of freedom. During the study of this period, students learn new ways to solve problems that were thought not to be solve-able some time ago and also predict the behavior of various systems. This degree focuses on the use of Computational Techniques to aid the solution of theoretical problems and analysis in detail. The students gain extensive programming skills and at the end of degree they are able to develop their own computational applications and data models.

Degree

Requirements

12 years of education (Higher Secondary School, Certificate/Intermediate) F.Sc, (Pre-Engg.)/ICS/DAE/A-Level or Equivalent, (Physics & Mathematics Combination) with at least second Division min 45% marks

Why this

Degree

A computational physicist who is competent in physical science, mathematical modeling and informatics has unlimited career options. With the background of practicing and solving large numerical projects, computational physicists are more likely to go out into private or public sector as a researcher, engineer, operation leader etc becoming part of huge projects in every area and offering solutions of the problems faced.
