Applied physics is the study of the basic laws of nature and their application to modern technologies.

The B.S. in Applied Physics program is designed to give students a broad background in physics while at the same time relating this background to applications used in technology-based industries including optical science and photonics, biophysics, astronomy/astrophysics, semiconductors, solar cells, and microelectronics (using NJIT's clean room facility). The curriculum is structured around three different concentrations (Optical Science and Engineering, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Biophysics). However, there is flexibility in the curriculum to allow students to pursue a broad exposure to several major areas of physics. For students that are potentially interested in attending Medical School, the Biophysics concentration is suggested.

For students who are interested in physics, as well as, computer science, a Dual Major in Applied Physics and Computer Science (B.S. program) is offered. Students who have a strong interest in Math may also consider the Dual Major in Applied Physics and Mathematics. As an Applied Physics major, students may also participate in an Accelerated Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental/Pre/Law program through NJIT's Honors College. Students who are interested in a teaching career have the option of earning a Teaching Certificate in conjunction with their undergraduate degree.

The B.S. in Applied Physics is a joint degree program offered by NJIT and Rutgers-Newark.

B. S. in Applied Physics - Astronomy Option (127 Credits)
FIRST YEAR:
1st Semester:

This curriculum represents the maximum number of credits per semester for which a student is advised to register.  A full-time credit load is 12 credits.  First-year students are placed in a curriculum that positions them for success which may result in additional time needed to complete curriculum requirements. Continuing students should consult with their academic advisor to determine the appropriate credit load.
