Bachelor physics course with a large amount of modelling / simulation

  1. Sep 30, 2014 #1
    Hi guys,

    I am very interested in modelling and simulation as a part of a bachelor physics course. So I am searching for a physics course, as a part of 1st year bachelor study, where you do very much modelling and simulation.
    Can you name me some universities or universities of applied sciences and arts with a physics course in 1st bachelor year that hits my condition? Doesn't matter where this university is.

    Would be happy if you shared your knowledge and experience.

    Thanks for your help.

    Look for specializations like computational physics and engineering science (Yes, this is a BE specialization but pretty much all they do is simulating physical systems). Different universities can have vastly different names on these specialization so have a look around the ones you can realistically go to (I don't understand people two spend like 3 hours going to school...) and if they have programs like these.

    Here is a link to B.E. in Eng. Sci. from Auckland:

    Apparently computational science died in Sydney, specialized courses can have this happen to them:
