The Licenciatura en Físicaprogram has a common core structure for the three specializations offered. In this core are the basic and intermediate courses of physics and mathematics, as well as courses in numerical methods and programming. From the fourth semester, students can choose one of the three specializations, and from there progress within this area until the eighth semester taking up to six courses in total for each specialization. The specific studies that are pursued within each specialization are the following:
Licenciatura en Física Mención Astronomía
Acquire fundamental knowledge of astronomy and cutting-edge computational tools that are used to develop systems and procedures for the modelling of astrophysical processes and the analysis of data. This specialization will allow the student to pursue postgraduate study in astronomy and provide support to research in the public and/or private sphere.
Licenciatura en Física Mención Ciencias Atmosféricas
Understand the theoretical and practical aspects of the atmospheric sciences, the cutting-edge computational tools for modelling, acquiring and analysing meteorological data, allowing the student to pursue postgraduate study in meteorology and provide support to research in the public and/or private sphere.
Licenciatura en Física Mención Computación Científica
Acquire fundamental knowledge of scientific computation and the cutting-edge computational tools used to develop systems and procedures in the area of high-performance computing, numerical simulations and the modelling of complex systems. This specialization will allow the student to pursue postgraduate study in the area of scientific computation and support research projects in the public and/or private sphere.
