Master of Science in Physics

  • Professors: Eilek, Krehbiel, Minschwaner, Raymond, Romero, Westpfahl (Chair of the Department), Winn
  • Associate Professors: Eack, Hofner, Sonnenfeld, Young
  • Assistant Professors: Creech-Eakman, Morales, Sessions
  • Adjunct Faculty: Avramidi, Balasubramaniam, Burcher, Colgate, Goss, Haniff, Klinglesmith, Manney, Meason, Myers, Pietraß, Rison, Rupen, E. Ryan, W. Ryan, Taylor, Teare, Thomas, Ulvestad, Weatherall
  • Emeritus Professors: Hankins, LeFebre, C. Moore, Schery,

Degrees Offered: M.S. in Physics; M.S. in Physics with Specialty in Instrumentation

The Master of Science degree in Physics may be earned under either of the following plans:

With Thesis:

The student’s course of study must be approved by the student’s advisory committee and must fulfill the general requirements for the master’s degree with thesis and must include a minimum of nine credit hours selected from: PHYS 505, 508, 513, 514, 515, 516, 526.

All students must complete PHYS 501 and 502 in their first two semesters.

Students presenting theoretical work for the thesis must, in addition, complete PHYS 501, 502.

The preliminary examination will cover courses in physics and mathematics normally included in the undergraduate physics curriculum. Thesis topics will be chosen in consultation with an advisory committee.

Without Thesis:

Courses approved by the student’s advisor must fulfill the general requirements for the master’s degree without thesis and must include the following:

  • PHYS 501 (1), 502 (1), PHYS 590 (3)
  • a minimum of nine credit hours selected from: PHYS 505, 508, 513, 514, 515, 516, 526.
  • PHYS 579 (1), Graduate-Faculty Seminar, must be taken for the first four semesters.

The preliminary examination will cover courses in physics and mathematics normally included in the undergraduate physics curriculum.

Master of Science in Physics with Specialty in Instrumentation
Students entering this M.S. program should have a bachelor’s degree in engineering, one of the sciences, mathematics, or computer science. Students will also be expected to complete at Tech basic undergraduate physics and electronics courses they have not had.

Given the varied backgrounds and interests of students in this specialty, the program of study is tailored to each student’s needs. The flexibility needed to do this is evident in the following requirements:

Credits

  • 9 Graduate physics courses approved by the student’s advisory committee
  • 3 EE 322, 322L (Advanced Electronics)
  • 4 EE 451, 451L (Digital Signal Processing)
  • 3 MATH 587 (Time Series)
  • 6 At least two of the following:  EE 341, 342 (Linear Systems), EE 443 (Control Theory), EE 446 (Communications Theory), CS 331, 432 (Computer Architecture, VLSI), PHYS 565 (Astronomical Techniques)
  • 3 Graduate course approved by the advisory committee
  • 3 PHYS 590 (Independent Study)
  • 32 Total credit hours

PHYS 579 (1), Graduate-Faculty Seminar, must be taken for the first four semesters. In addition to the above requirements, students must satisfy the general requirements for the M.S. degree and pass a preliminary examination on undergraduate physics and electronics.
