The core courses also include the management and evaluation of technology and communications skills.
The electives which can be taken from a range of topics are designed so that students can develop their own course of study according to their interests.
The curriculum of the graduate program in Applied Physics consists of core courses and elective courses.
The core courses are designed to provide students with the fundamentals of physics and skills in computing, mathematics and instrumentations.
Other emerging areas are fuel cells, solar cells, graphen carbon materials, integrated-circuit chips, and superconducting materials.
Students conduct hands-on research training at the Interdisciplinary Materials Research and Education Laboratory (IMREL).The reserach training prepares students for graduate studies or industrial careers.More details about the program can be found at the webpage of Materials Science Minor Program.Eligible Missouri State undergraduate students may apply for admission to the Master of Natural and Applied Science program and begin taking graduate course work as they complete the work for a bachelor’s degree.A maximum of 12 hours of graduate credit may be counted toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree (Mixed Credit).The research project starts by conducting an extensive literature review, followed by performing experiments and preparing a dissertation.This programme is designed to develop professionals with broad capabilities appropriate for careers in technical research or advanced graduate study.Eligible Missouri State undergraduate students may apply for admission to the Science Content certificate program and begin taking graduate course work as they complete the work for a bachelor’s degree.A maximum of 12 hours of graduate credit may be counted toward both the undergraduate and graduate certificate (Mixed Credit).Refer to the Graduate Catalog for specific admission requirements.Refer to Undergraduate Students Taking Graduate Classes for additional information and procedures for obtaining permission for Mixed Credit.
