Ten courses must be completed within five years. The curriculum consists of four core courses and six electives. At least four of the courses must be at the 700-level or higher. An Applied Physics elective may be substituted for a required course if the student has previously completed an equivalent graduate-level course. Only one C-range grade (C+, C, or C−) can count toward the master’s degree. All course selections outside of the Applied Physics core, elective, and/or the relevant concentration course requirements below are subject to advisor approval.
Select four (at least three must be from the first six).
Select six of the following:
Materials and Condensed Matter Core Courses
Four core courses Students can elect to concentrate their studies in materials and condensed matter by completing a combination of courses from the Applied Physics (615.xxx), Electrical and Computer Engineering (525.xxx), and Materials Science and Engineering (515.xxx) programs. Four Applied Physics core courses are required. Of the remaining six courses, four or more must be materials and condensed matter courses selected from the Applied Physics (615.xxx), Electrical and Computer Engineering (525.xxx), and Materials Science and Engineering (515.xxx) programs. All course selections are subject to advisor approval.
Materials and Condensed Matter Electives
Select at least four
Three Applied Physics core courses (EN.615.xxx), one Electrical and Computer Engineering core course (EN.525.xxx), four Photonics electives, and two electives from the program must be completed.
Select at least four of the following:
Complement your knowledge with principles that can be applied to almost every discipline of science, engineering, industry, and technology—from defense technology and business to public policy and biomedicine.
