Applied Physics Student Learning Outcomes

Students who graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics will be able to

1. Carry out the process of scientific investigation, using appropriate lab
techniques and safety procedures.

2. Apply mathematical techniques to represent, model, and solve physics
problems, including real world problems.

3. Write simple computer programs that control scientific experiments, gather
physical data, and model or simulate physical processes.

4. Apply specific knowledge in the areas of mechanics, electromagnetism,
thermal physics, and quantum phenomena to problem solve in these fields and to
real-world applications.

5. Design, troubleshoot, and test analog and digital electronic circuits for real-
world applications.

6. Keep a laboratory notebook and know how to present scientific information as
a technical article, as a formal journal article, or as a public oral presentation.
