Graduate Degree Programs

The NJIT and Rutgers-Newark departments of physics offer a unique opportunity to pursue master's and doctoral degree physics in a joint program combining the resources of two of New Jersey's public research universities.

Interdisciplinary  physics research is available in collaboration with faculties of NJIT, Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-New Brunswick, and UMDNJ in areas such as device physics, materials research, ultrafast optical and optoelectronic phenomena, imaging technology, surface physics, free electron laser physics, biophysics, discharge physics, solar physics, and applied laser physics. Cooperative research efforts are underway with the National Solar Observatory, Lucent Technologies Bell Labs Innovations, U.S. Army Research Laboratory, and other industrial and federal research laboratories.

Students who are interested in graduate work in materials engineering may wish to consider the Materials Science and Engineering program.
