Physics Certificate Programs

Certificates

The department offers five Graduate Certificate programs to students meeting the regular admission requirements for the master's program. Each Graduate Certificate program is self-contained and highly focused, carrying 12 graduate credits. All of the courses may be used toward the master's degree, as well as for the certificate.

Applied Optics

  • PEP 577 Laser Theory and Design
  • PEP 578 Laser Applications and Advanced Optics

The following course could be substituted for PEP 578:

  • PEP 678 Physics of Optical Communication Systems

Two of the following four courses must be met:

  • PEP 515 Photonics I
  • PEP 516 Photonics II
  • PEP 570 Guided-Wave Optics
  • PEP 679 Fourier Optics

Atmospheric and Environmental Science and Engineering
(Interdisciplinary with Civil, Ocean, and Environmental Engineering)

  • PEP 575 Fundamentals of Atmospheric Radiation and Climate

This graduate certificate program is offered as a campus-based program, as well as a web-based distance learning program.

Microdevices and Microsystems

  • PEP 507 Introduction to Microelectronics and Photonics
  • PEP 595 Reliability and Failure of Solid State Devices
  • PEP 596 Micro-Fabrication Techniques
  • PEP 685 Physical Design of Wireless Systems

Any ONE elective in the three certificates above may be replaced with another within the Microelectronics and Photonics (MP) curriculum upon approval from the MP Program Director.

Microelectronics

  • PEP 507 Introduction to Microelectronics and Photonics
  • PEP 561 Solid State Electronics for Engineering I
  • PEP 562 Solid State Electronics for Engineering II
  • PEP 690 Introduction to VLSI Design

Photonics

  • PEP 507 Introduction to Microelectronics and Photonics
  • PEP 515 Photonics I
  • PEP 516 Photonics II
  • PEP 626 Optical Communication Systems
