"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."

Albert Einstein-

The quickening pace of development at the frontier between physics and other disciplines such as engineering or medicine, creates a need for interdisciplinary training and research which is not readily accommodated by traditional single-focus graduate programs. The University of Michigan Applied Physics Program is designed to fill this gap, providing students with the opportunity to gain a solid base in the fundamentals of modern physics while exploring applications in the context of various branches of engineering, bio and medical science, chemistry, geology, environmental science, natural resources and public policy.
