Take a deep dive into the fundamentals and practical applications of engineering physics.

The engineering physics master’s program prepares students for a successful career in industry or research by combining courses in fundamental physics with specializations that focus on applications to current research and technology. Students will gain deeper insight and skills in specific branches of engineering and interdisciplinary physics research including quantum engineering, applied optics, solid state device engineering and nanotechnology.

With five concentrations in specific areas of industry, students have the ability to specialize their education for specific career tracks. Applied optics prepares you for optics design and manufacturing or any industry that uses optical systems. Quantum engineering will give you the background to understand modern development of quantum systems as well as the practical, hands-on experience to be able to establish communications links and build computers.

While many physics graduates go on to obtain a Ph.D., many also work within research roles in sectors and industries as varied as their interests–defense, aerospace, government, education, healthcare, energy, materials, technology, computing and IT.

The Stevens Advantage

In 1871, Stevens was the first university to offer a physics lab, and continues to break new ground in areas related to quantum engineering and communications. Quantum technology is revolutionizing society and driving civilization to a new level in the same way that digital electronics has done in the last half century. The exciting research happening at Stevens by globally recognized faculty members will contribute to that evolution, allowing students the opportunity to learn from the best at a pivotal time during a new technological revolution.
