Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program introduces students to the sophisticated high performance computing techniques required for the solution of cutting-edge problems in theoretical, computational and mathematical physics. Students will be able to develop skills to program parallel supercomputers using state of the art computer language and gain the mathematical and computational skills necessary to solve challenging problems at the forefront of physics.
Level 1 consists of core courses in physics, mathematics and computing science, with an option for students to broaden their studies in areas such as electrical engineering or chemistry. At level 2, students further develop in the core areas of study, with a focus on physics and applied mathematics. Level 3 involves advanced courses in physics and computational physics. Students undertake the final year honours program in theoretical or computational physics, which includes a research project and the option of specialised courses in computer science and mathematics. This enables students to apply their high-performance computing skills to modern physics problems.
