BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN APPLIED PHYSICS

The undergraduate degree program in Applied Physics is a balance between a holistic general education program and a substantial Physics curriculum. It provides the students with a comprehensive and rigorous training in physics as a foundation for careers in pure and applied physics or interdisciplinary sciences. The students will be engaged in actual experimental designs in photonics and biophysics, and in data analysis via computational simulations. On their fourth year, the students will embark on an on-the-job training either in other Physics Institutes for theoretical works, in IT-related companies, or in research laboratories. All of these activities provide the needed analytical, numerical, and experimental skills of Physics graduates.
