Degree Programs

BS Physics

The BS Physics Program was designed to give the physics major a thorough understanding of the practical and experimental principles of physics balanced with an in-depth appreciation of the corresponding theoretical background of these principles. It prepares a well-trained and competent physicist essential for the development of the nation’s basic scientific and technological needs. Materials physics, environmental physics, and optics are among the special areas of emphasis of the program. Graduates find employment as technically capable managers, engineers, professors, and researchers in private and government organizations both here and abroad.

BS Physics with Applied Computer System

BS Physics with Applied Computer Systems is a five-year ladder program conferring the graduates with two degrees. The program prepares specialists in computers and microprocessor-based systems highly sought after by industry and government.
