What's a career field that incorporates physics and computer science?
I'm a rising senior in high school and I am interested in physics, calculus, and computer science. I don't know what I want to do in college but I do want to double major. What are some careers that incorporate this? Is it a good idea to double major in physics and computer science? Or is there something else I should major in?

Frank recommends the following next steps:
In both fields at my college, you must learn how to code, thus the CS aspect of what you were desiring.
But, you must also know physics and have good skills in mathematics. I don't know if this fully answered your question but I know I used my content and passion for CS to help determine that I wanted to be a Computer Engineer.
A very good thread here - https://www.reddit.com/r/Physics/comments/2vy9sp/physics_major_with_a_computer_science_major_good/
This can give you good idea.
If someone were to invent a new measuring capability, the potential for monetary reward is very big.
Physics is a very exciting field I believe 3D printing also lines up with computer science and physics. 3D printing is not going to go away. That is a growing field at my job (Dow Chemical) and many other companies as well. Seimens is one company that uses physics and computer science. They give scholarships also so check into that.
