Overview

Much of modern scientific technology is based on physics. Applied physics is an academic field to research and develop fundamental technology that will support advanced industries of the future. Students in this major will learn advanced measurement technology and other physics methodology that forms the basis of engineering technology.

Research topics include new instrumentation and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies for medical and biological applications; photonics technology such as laser engineering, optical information processing, and X-ray engineering; instrumentation utilizing ion beams and radiology; and energy and environmental technology such as plasma fusion and nuclear engineering. Education focuses on the development of such skills needed for the advanced engineering fields which will be in demand by society.

To become a forerunner in such uncovered areas, an engineer must be well-versed in the basics as well as have the creativity to resolve unexpected difficulties.

The Applied Physics Major places importance on the basic knowledge needed in each specific field while also integrating advanced technology courses, in order to train creative and proactive engineers who are not bound by existing discipline structures.
