Love calculations, formulas and data-enabled science? Want to solve cutting-edge problems at the forefront of physics?

Computational physics is a rapidly growing and highly interdisciplinary research area. High-performance computations are an essential part of modern research in particle physics, condensed-matter physics, astrophysics, fluid mechanics, quantum field theory, quantum chromodynamics, and plasma physics.

This program is accredited by the Australian Institute of Physics.

In our Bachelor of Science (High Performance Computational Physics) (Honours) you will:

  • find answers to cutting-edge problems using high-performance computing
  • learn to program parallel supercomputers using state-of-the-art computer languages
  • access the University's supercomputer, Phoenix; a 300 teraflop high-performance computer
  • immerse yourself in small group discovery experiences with like-minded peers
  • take core courses in physics, mathematics and computer science
  • apply sophisticated computing skills to modern physics problems.
In your final year Honours Program, you’ll dive deep into theoretical or computational physics and physics applications. This includes specialist research projects and courses.
