Applied Physics

Physics, often said to be the most fundamental of all the sciences, deals with the constituents, properties, and evolution of the entire universe, on all length and time scales.


Time and Space in the Universe

The Department of Applied Physics is dedicated to educating each new generation and preparing them to explore the practical uses and applications of physics.

If you’re interested in bridging the gap between pure physics and engineering and learning how knowledge of condensed matter and quantum mechanics are changing the world, Applied Physics might be the course of study for you.

 

Degrees and Programs

Applied Physics, B.S.

Applied Physics is devoted to the study and understanding of nature. Considered the most fundamental science, it deals with the constituents, properties, and evolution of the entire universe, from the smallest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies.

Physics and Mathematics, B.S.

Mathematics has applications to nearly every branch of science and engineering, and advances in physics — for example, those in electromagnetism and thermodynamics — often resonate deeply with mathematics.

Applied Physics, M.S.

As a master's student in the Applied Physics program at NYU Tandon, you will be prepared to master and apply the most fundamental and influential science. You will learn in an innovative environment and gain the skills needed to thrive.
