Brown Bag Seminars

Because Applied Physics is multidisciplinary, students are encouraged to attend a variety of different brown bag lunches in different disciplines. Incoming students should receive invitations to each of the events. Lunch (no drink) is typically provided at these events for those who RSVP. If you do not RSVP, you are still welcome to attend the meeting, but please bring your own lunch. Incoming students are encouraged to attend as many seminars as possible to obtain a broader depth of knowledge on multiple subjects.

Below is the list of dates, times, and locations of brown bag seminars hosted by Applied Physics. Check back for updates to this page to see who will be speaking at each event.
