Certificate in Computational Physics
Computation is an integral part of modern science and the certificate in computational physics is designed to educate students in computer simulation of physical systems. Computational physics prepares students to build computational models, design algorithms for numerical solutions, analyze the calculated data and perform computer experiments, (that are otherwise unfeasible), by using high-performance computers. A certificate in computational physics proves that students are skilled in modeling physical system and delivering solutions through computer programming.
The certificate can be pursued by all physics, engineering and general science majors.
Students may earn an undergraduate certificate in computational physics by completing 12 credit hours of course work offered by the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
