The BS in Applied Physics program allows the students to choose a specialization in the following fields: (1) Instrumentation Physics, (2) Computer Hardware Physics, and (3) Agricultural Physics. The initial research thrusts of the Applied Physics Laboratory are in these areas.
The student shall be required to take the courses covering pure and applied physics and area-specialized courses. The core courses are classified into two categories: pure physics and applied physics. The ability to solve practical problems involving physics naturally rests on one’s knowledge of the fundamental concepts and principles in physics.
The student acquires this through a series of courses in pure physics covering mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, statistical and thermal physics, structure of matter and methods of mathematical physics. On the other hand, the actual applications of the principles learned in the pure physics courses invariably involve the measurement of a physical quantity using an instrument. It may even require the design of an instrument. Thus, to acquire necessary background, students take applied physics courses, covering electronics and environmental physics.
