A Message from the Graduate Coordinator
Leading edge research lies at heart of graduate programs in physics. At UMass Lowell our Department of Physics and Applied Physics, with over $10 million annually in funded research, is well positioned to offer M.S. and Ph.D. programs specializing in physics and applied physics, both experimental and theoretical. The programs include: sub-millimeter wave (terahertz) technology, photonics, materials physics, nano-science and technology, nuclear physics, biophotonics, computational physics, space physics, astronomy, health physics, and medical physics. We have 80 graduate students in our program. FinancialaAid is available for Ph.D. students in the form of teaching and research assistantships.
Graduates from our programs hold positions in academia, national laboratories, government agencies, major medical facilities, and industry. They have been successful in gaining employment in areas dealing with material properties, electro-optics, computer modeling, advanced radiation detection for nuclear physics and homeland security, as well as radiation safety and protection, medical diagnostic imaging, and therapeutic medical physics.
