Applied Optics is the application of optics to a broad realm of processes and products in industry, such as
The Applied Physics program produces intellectually engaged graduates accomplished in application of fundamental physics principles, and prepared for direct entry into the workplace or continuing professional development.
The Applied Physics degree program is a unique integration of a rigorous curriculum with meaningful co-op work experience and emphasis on applied areas of acoustics, optics, and materials, a strong background in mathematics, and computational techniques. Graduates emerge prepared for success in graduate school or technical careers.
Physics is the most fundamental science and underlies the understanding of nearly all areas of science, technology, and engineering. Physics is concerned with the study of energy, space, time, matter, the interaction between material objects and the laws that govern these interactions at various scales from sub nano-scale to light-years scale.
