Along with pedagogical activity, the field of professional activity of graduates of the “Computer Physics” EP can be the field of science, organizations, institutions and enterprises related to research in the field of physics and technology, in particular radio-electronic and telecommunication technologies, computer simulation of processes and software development for industrial enterprises various industries, software and database companies, research institutes.

The content of the EP “Computer Physics” is structured in such a way that students in the 3rd year of study have the right to choose their specialization, related to programming and software development, as well as electronic and telecommunication technology.

Currently, the direction of computer physics is relevant in the world since the current state of development of science, engineering and technology often requires the ability to predict, analyze and evaluate the need and effectiveness of certain (including financial) costs when introducing new developments in any industry; in this case, the ability to simulate using a computer a particular physical or other technological process is the only way to find the answer to the question of the feasibility of conducting experiments or tests in a particular industry.

The purpose and objectives of the educational program
