The Applied Condensed Matter Physics Major looks at the micro-level characteristics of materials (properties) from a physics standpoint, for applications that can contribute to society.

Computers, cars, telecommunication devices, satellites, and all other advanced industrial products skillfully integrate the functions of metal, semi-conductors, and insulators.
This includes transistors, memory, and solid-state lasers, as well as optical and magnetic memory devices, sensors for the environment, and shape memory elements. These are the results of material engineering research, along with the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity elements, which are potential energy-saving materials. 

In order to expand the functions of materials which will become the foundation of future scientific technology, it is necessary to understand the micro-level characteristics of materials, with focus on superconductivity, magnetic materials, semiconductors, dielectrics, and metal.
New functions are also made possible by new structures such as artificial lattices, amorphous structures, and nano-crystalline structures, and are now an important part of our research and development. 

With this understanding, the educational objective of the Applied Condensed Matter Physics Major is to develop skills needed to identify and utilize new material functions to support the scientific technology of tomorrow.
