Computer Science and Physics

Combined program

Combined program towards the degree of a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science and Physics.
This combined program is designated for outstanding students, and is administered jointly by the Computer Science and Physics  faculties. It is an admission track requiring application at the time of registration to the Technion.

Career Options and Job Opportunities

The aim of this track is to give students a solid basis in both physics and computer science, which will enable them to participate in and lead research and development in these areas. Enrolled in this track are excellent students, most of whom continue to graduate studies in one of the two faculties according to their preference. Some are admitted to other leading universities or join the hi-tech industry. It is important to note that in recent years the hi-tech world is gaining increasing interest in quantum computers and quantum communication and cryptography.

This track is especially suited for students interested in training in inter-disciplinary subjects, such as: quantum computing, quantum communication and cryptography, physics of computer science, scientific computing, computational physics, intelligent systems, optics and image processing, optical communication, dynamics and more. Moreover, graduates of this track acquire deep know-how which will help them substantially in any direction they will decide to choose in academia or industry for their future career.

Study Program

The eight-semester program includes all required courses of both Physics and Computer Science. The courses in this program are evenly distributed between physics and computer science.

Students are awarded the degree "a Bachelor's of Science (BSc) in Computer Science and Physics". The curriculum covers the material of the three-year degrees of both faculties.

Host Faculty

Each student belongs to one of the host faculties, Physics or Computer Science, according to his/her choice.  However, the students will benefit from services given by both faculties and specifically will be given access to the libraries, computer farms and laboratories of both faculties.

Secondary Specialization Track in Quantum Computing

The program is offered by the Computer Science Faculty and is especially suitable for outstanding students in the Computer Science & Physics track.

Detailed information appears in the undergraduate catalog of the Faculty of Computer Science.

Outstanding graduates of the Computer Science & Physics track and the specialization program will have an advantage as prospective candidates for advanced degree programs including, specialization in quantum computing and technology, which exist in several faculties at the Technion, including the Faculty of Physics

Graduate Studies

Graduates of the combined program in Computer Science and Physics will be able to continue their studies in the Physics or in the Computer Science faculties. During the master's degree studies, either in Computer Science or in Physics, these graduates will be considered as graduates of a four-year track program.
