Physics (B.S.)/Computer Science (M.A.S.)
Simultaneously earn a bachelor's degree in physics and a professional master's degree in computer science in as few as five years in this accelerated master's degree program.
Combining a strong physics background with advanced computer skills builds strong computational physicists who can build models for experiments.
The physics program at Illinois Tech has a rigorous interdisciplinary nature to the program, providing a greater understanding of how physics is interrelated with biology and chemistry. Be prepared for immediate entry into positions in industrial, medical, and other research laboratories and for graduate study in biophysics, solid state physics, or high-energy physics.
Then earn a Master of Computer Science degree. Combined with the interdisciplinary physics program, advanced computer science skills will provide you a strong competitive edge when entering the natural science job market.
