The University of Michigan has a distinguished record of innovation in applied physics. As an interdisciplinary graduate program, applied physics brings the fundamentals of physical theory together with its applications to modern technology and practical “hands-on” training in the research laboratories. Applied physics benefits from the university’s acclaimed multidisciplinary research environment by providing dynamic graduate training and research that lays a solid base in the fundamentals of modern physics, while also exploring applications in the context of various branches of engineering, biological and medical science, chemistry, geology, environmental science, natural resources, and public policy. With access to the most advanced facilities and foremost scholars and scientists across the campus, our students gain the knowledge and skills to apply and advance concepts in emerging technologies. Our graduates are highly sought to fill leadership positions in research, industry, academia, and government.
