Physics

Do You Ever Wonder, "How Does That Work?"
The laws of physics govern every aspect of the universe, from a supernova in a distant galaxy to the photons beaming from your computer monitor. To study physics is to study the interactions of particles that are responsible for every object and every phenomenon we have and have yet to observe.

The Physics program takes the study of such interactions and applies it to real-life technologies, such as lasers, imaging, and microelectronics. In keeping with Stevens dedication to innovation, students learn to create and innovate as they study the forces that hold together our universe. The program provides special emphasis on the fields of atomic, molecular and optical physics (AMO), solid state electronics, quantum information science, and photonics technology.

Learn for Yourself with SKIL
The Stevens Applied Physics curriculum is built around the SKIL (Science Knowledge Integration Ladder) course sequence. This six-semester core sequence allows students to work on projects of their own choosing. This fosters independent learning, innovative problem solving, collaboration and team work, and knowledge integration under the guidance of a faculty advisor. Students also gain hands-on experience in one of the research laboratories.

An inquiring and active mind is required at Stevens, where you will learn about and make your own discoveries in the realm of physics. Visit the Physics & Engineering Physics Web site for more details, or admissions to apply today.
