Undergraduate Majors

Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics

The BS in Applied Physics is a joint degree program offered by NJIT and Rutgers-Newark.  The program offers students a general physics option with a broad exposure to several major areas of physics. A double major in applied physics and computer science (BS program) is also available.

The curriculum as described in the online catalog is for students entering NJIT as freshmen in the Fall of 2000 or after that date. Students entering before that date may have a different program and should consult the department to learn which curriculum applies.

Bachelor of Science in Biophysics

The BS in Biophysics provides excellent training for careers in medicine and related fields.  A large part of the MCAT and similar exams are devoted to this interdisciplinary area because it is so important.  The biophysics courses use physics as a foundation and integrate biomedical science such as medical devices, cellular electronics, genetic engineering, microbiology, molecular biology and radiology.

You will learn and apply the simple, basic principles that allow us to understand all parts of biomedical science.  Our faculty and researchers invent and discover new medicines, microsensors, nanoscale probes of cells, devices to prevent blindness and ways to protect the lives of soldiers.

The curriculum as described in the online catalog is for students entering NJIT as freshmen in the Fall, 2011.  Students entering before that dat may have a different program and should consult the department to learn which curriculum applies.
