Fall 2023:
December 15, 2022


The MS degree in Applied Physics is directed toward students with interests in the engineering of physical systems for which acquisition and interpretation of information requires an understanding of underlying physical models, measurement techniques, and disruptive factors such as noise, turbulence, and spurious signals. Examples include RF electromagnetic or acoustic detection of objects or resources, photonic sources and detection, and design and modeling of aeronautical, mechanical, and biomedical components and systems.

Career opportunities for those who have completed the Master of Science in Applied Physics include aerospace, photonics, remote chemical and environmental sensing, and electromagnetic and mechanical systems engineering.

International Students: This program is eligible for the OPT STEM extension.
