Is pairing computer science with applied physics feasible?
I am an aspiring student awaiting replies from universities but I wanted to know if the burden of taking comp sci and applied physics both, manageable in university.

I live in Poland and finished Faculty of Technical Physics, Information Technology and Applied Mathematics on Lodz University of Technology. My specialization is technical physics. We had a great opportunity to learn a lot about computer science as well during our studies as computers / programming / simulations are around us and are extremely useful in physics. To be good physicist you need to know maths and computer science very well and constantly develop your skills on those.
A lot of study subjects on Computer Science / Technical Physics were the same, but extended later during studies - depending what specialization you will choose.
I would say yes. Although to avoid burnout, you might want to do an extended semester or year to finish both together. I know several people who also hold multiple degrees who've taken them as double majors or pursued them after graduating with their first major. So if you have more than one interest, it's never a waste to pursue them. It never hurts to be a lifetime learner..
