Program Highlights

Students choose from interdisciplinary concentrations in astrophysics, geophysics, materials science, biophysics, mathematical physics, and solid-state physics. Undergraduate students can pursue a double degree in physics and electrical engineering. Students have an excellent opportunity to gain research experience at the Center for Applied Physics Studies (CAPS) and at the Institute for Micromanufacturing. Students who chose to perform research with CAPS may focus on particle and nuclear physics, modeling, or biophysics. There are several ongoing research projects, each a collaborative effort involving top research laboratories at the national and international levels. Students who choose to perform research with the Institute for Micromanufacturing may focus on biophysics and nanobiotechnology.
