The Applied Science Program

Applied Science (http://as.wm.edu) is an interdisciplinary graduate department that offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the physical and biological sciences. Courses and research opportunities are offered cooperatively by the core faculty of Applied Science along with affiliated faculty from the Departments of Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology and the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences (VIMS), as well as from the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) and the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab). In Applied Science we use the tools, the techniques, and the understanding involved in a wide range of sciences in order to solve complex scientific and technical problems. Core faculty research interests include: nondestructive evaluation, robotics and medical imaging; epidemic modeling and non-linear dynamics; nanotechnology and thin films, surface science, electronic and magnetic materials science; physical and chemical properties and characterization of polymers; laser spectroscopy; solid state nuclear magnetic resonance; neurophysiology; computational neuroscience and cell biology. Material characterization, cultural heritage materials.

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, and biology. Also, a minor in Applied Science is offered with a track in either Computational Biology or Materials Science.
