Overview

It is a highly functional mixture of applied mathematics, computer science, and physics. Computational physicists bring computing skills to the solution of scientific problems—an approach traditional majors do not offer.

At the Computational Physics program of Siena College, you will perform cutting-edge computational research in our High Performance Computing Cluster and study in close proximity to the region’s large nanotech and biotech companies.

Your future success

Graduates are prepared for employment in research laboratories, business, academia, and high-tech companies.

Computational Physicists master technical skills, including mathematical formulation and analysis of problems, the use of software packages and computer algorithms, simulations and modeling, numerical analysis, visualization, and programming. All valuable skills that together with a multidisciplinary background, make computational scientists highly sought after by employers.
