Physics Major with Applied Mechanics Emphasis
This is one of the two applied tracks within the physics major aimed at the students who plan on pursuing a career in industry right after graduation. Students take most of the core upper-level physics courses, with more emphasis on the laboratory courses. Students majoring in physics with Applied Mechanics Emphasis are required to participate in an industrial internship either at a local business or in London through the Study Abroad Program
Please consult with the Applied Emphasis Coordinator when planning your major. Some physics courses are offered only in alternate years.
