Applied Physics (PSM, minor)

If you have a bachelor's degree in physics, you know that physics is a fundamental scientific discipline that is at the core of most modern technology. Applied Physics takes that fundamental knowledge and translates it into technology and systems that drive our economy. Applied physicists study photovoltaic technology, optoelectronics, energy and communications systems, imaging of cells and nanostructures, and many other subjects.

Your technical knowledge, along with your skills in mathematics, computation, instrumentation and scientific problem-solving, place you exactly at the right place to manage the complex interface between science and commerce and industry. With your background, you can find an exciting career in virtually any activity where success depends on identifying and exploiting new technical knowledge. Industry leaders tell us that our dynamic, technologically-based economy needs scientifically educated men and women who understand fundamental scientific principles, who have the ability to re-educate themselves in a constantly changing technical landscape, and who can effectively communicate across the lines of specialization.
