The Applied Science Program

The Department of Applied Science (http://www.wm.edu/as/appliedscience/) is an interdisciplinary graduate department that focuses on the Ph.D., which also offers an M.S. degree in some cases. Both degrees can be customized and focused into a number of concentrations in the physical and natural sciences. The program is offered by the core faculty of Applied Science in cooperation with affiliated faculty from the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), as well as from the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab).

Core faculty research interests include: Nondestructive Evaluation, Robotics and Medical Imaging; Nanotechnology and Thin Films, Surface Science, Electronic and Magnetic Materials Science; Laser Spectroscopy; Physical and Chemical Properties and Characterization of Polymers; Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance; Neurophysiology and Cell Biology; Computational Neuroscience; Biophysical Chemistry & Structural Biology; Plasma Modeling and Fusion Science; Geospatial Analysis.

While Applied Science does not offer an undergraduate major, many courses in the department are particularly suitable for undergraduate students of physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, neuroscience and biology. Also, a minor in Applied Science is offered with a track in either Computational Biology or Materials Science.
