Applied Physics Graduate Program

The Rice Applied Physics Graduate Program offers one of the few doctoral degrees in applied physics in the world. A joint effort of the School of Natural Sciences and the School of Engineering at Rice, this program provides a truly multidisciplinary graduate education. We produce well-trained physicists who can apply their knowledge and skills in basic physics to important cutting-edge problems in diverse disciplines of modern science and engineering.
