Undergraduate Program

The applied physics undergraduate program stresses the basic physics that underlies most developments in engineering and the mathematical tools that are important to both physicists and engineers.

Graduate Programs

We offer graduate studies leading to the Master of Science (MS), Master of Philosophy (MPhil), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees.

Applied Physics (AP) includes plasma physics and controlled fusion, solid-state physics, optical and laser physics
