Putting Physics to Work
Do you think that a career in physics means spending the rest of your life in academia? Well, applied physicists aren't your ordinary physicists. A conventional physicist studies quantum mechanics; our Applied Physics students study how quantum mechanics can be put to work. Our Engineering Physics degree applies your knowledge in optics, acoustics and materials to drive high-performance solutions.
Maximize Your Career Path
Many Physics students double major, often in a field such as Math, Applied Science or Engineering, or pursue a minor to better prepare for careers in such fields as aerospace or medical devices, alternative energies of emerging technologies as well as pursuing a graduate degree related to Physics.
