Physics with Scientific Computing with Industrial Experience - University of Bristol

Do you enjoy both physics and computing? Our MSci Physics with Scientific Computing with Industrial Experience combines a study of the building blocks and forces of nature with training in computing and data-science skills. It includes a year gaining hands-on paid experience in industry. Computing skills are vital across many physics-related careers. This course offers a unique combination of units and projects blending programming, machine-learning, data science and high-performance computing with fundamental concepts in physics. It aims to produce a new kind of scientist – one with a firm foundation in physics, a sound appreciation of scientific computing and an understanding of what can be achieved by combining them. The industrial year can be a life changing and rewarding experience providing valuable insights into the commercial pressures and real-world applications of physics and computing. Year one gives you a comprehensive grounding in physics, mathematics and programming, while year two focuses on the principles of physics with further emphasis on scientific coding. The third year is spent working on a computing project with an industrial partner. You will study core physics via distance learning in readiness for your return and your final-year project. This will be a major research project, supervised by staff with expertise in physics and computing, and addressing questions at the frontiers of our research fields. The most successful final year research projects from related courses have been published in scientific journals. You will join a friendly department with a very active, award-winning student society. We encourage you to develop a broad range of skills, including the experimental, theoretical and computational skills needed for a career in research and industry. Our physics graduates have an excellent record of employment, a testament to the value that employers place on these skills. If you have a fascination for physics and an appetite for scientific computing, you will enjoy this programme. Please note, the admissions statement for this course will be available online in summer 2019.
