About

Students apply to and are admitted to one of these three specialty programs: Applied Physics; Applied Mathematics; Materials Science & Engineering.

The confluence of these programs in one department promotes a uniquely interactive and exciting academic and research environment for graduate study. Each program has its own coursework, qualifying exam, and research opportunities. Students are expected to meet the requirements of the program that they are admitted into. Some programs have specific course requirements for the doctorate; elective courses are determined in consultation with the program adviser.

Successful completion of a 30-point M.S. program and an additional approved 30-point program of study is required along with successful completion of a written qualifying examination taken after two semesters of graduate study. An oral examination, taken within one year after the written qualifying examination, and a thesis proposal examination, taken within two years after the written qualifying examination, are required of all doctoral candidates.
