This major enables students to learn about the interactions of energy and matter, precision measurement techniques, measuring and understanding the laws of nature and how new developments in physics are helping to expand the frontiers of technology. This major is a combination of theory and practice with lots of opportunities for practical skills and laboratory experience.
Core study areas include computational physics, electromagnetics, electronics and interfacing, energy science, optics, measurement techniques, quantum and solid-state physics.
Students have access to modern, high technology micro-structural analysis instruments, and are taught how to apply them. Students gain critical thinking skills and how to apply practical problem solving skills in a hands-on environment. They also learn how applied research progresses and the creation of new technology.
