Plans E, F, and G

Students who plan to seek employment at the B.S. level are advised to take an emphasis in a particular subject by selecting specific emphasis courses from the physics major (see plan A ). Students must fulfill all general and program requirements in addition to those required by the emphasis, and the physics research for a chosen emphasis (PHYS 4683 ) should be carried out in the area of the emphasis. At the completion of the emphasis, the student will be given a certificate of completion.


Solid state physics is a cornerstone of modern technology. This program, designed for chemistry, physics and engineering majors, emphasizes the practical aspects of solid state physics, including electronics. In this plan, students must follow the guidelines of Plan A, but must also include the following courses as part of the major:


* (or) PHYS 4523  or PHYS 3413
