Undergraduate research is encouraged, and some opportunities include the chance to earn money while learning alongside nationally known researchers. Faculty members in the physics department bring in the most federal research dollars per capita of any NJIT department in areas such as solar-terrestrial research, optics, materials science and biophysics.
Choose from three concentrations:
- B.S. Applied Physics (Optical Science and Engineering Program)
- B.S. Applied Physics (Astronomy Concentration)
A double major with computer science or mathematics is also available. NJIT operates Big Bear and Owens Valley Solar Observatories in California. This is a joint program with Rutgers-Newark. You can continue your studies at CSLA with an MS or PhD in Applied Physics.
