Applied Physics is an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program that bridges physics with emerging technologies
Michigan has a distinguished record of innovation in Applied Physics. With a broad range of multidisciplinary research and access to the most advanced facilities, the program offers a dynamic environment for graduate training. Structured to meet individual goals, our curriculum allows research training blending the discipline of physics with chemistry, engineering, environmental science, geology, medicine, natural resources and public policy.
The University of Michigan Applied Physics Program is committed to a leading role in this endeavor. Current projects include nanoscience and technology, condensed matter and materials physics, optics, energy, plasma and chemical physics, atomic and molecular physics, biophysics, photonics, quantum electronics and information, solid state electronics synchrotron radiation and ultrafast science.
Our graduates are highly sought after to fill leadership positions in research, industry, academia and government. We invite you to look at our website to discover why the opportunities for bridging science and technology have never been more exciting here at the University of Michigan in Applied Physics!
"Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel."
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Applied Physics Program needs your support.
