The applied physics major provides education and training in fundamental physics, in detection and sensing, with an emphasis on the teaching of basic knowledge and special technology in the development and utilization of new energy and light display and basic knowledge and skills in computer applications. We have, over the years, developed systematic approaches that effectively implemented our teaching objectives and our program has competitive advantages in detection and sensing, new energy and light display, optoelectronic materials and devices. This major has two specialties:

1. Detection and sensing. This specialty teaches the students in the basic knowledge of physics as a solid background. It emphasizes applications in the image sensor technology, the principle and application of sensor, nondestructive examination and sensing, curriculum design and other related professional knowledge. The students in the specialty will master basic skills of nondestructive detection and sensor design and applications. We provide them with a solid training in the foundations of physics, and make them acquire basic skills in the detection and sensing technology. Students graduated from this specialty can work in detection and sensing and other related fields or pursue related scientific research, teaching, technology development and related management work. They can also choose to pursue graduate studies in this specialty.

2. New energy and light display. This specialty provides students with the basic knowledge of physics as a solid background, and prepare them for work in such directions as renewable energy, technical training in energy consumption and conservation, and environmental protection. We teach them basic theory and technology knowledge regarding the design of renewable energy and new energy equipment, optimization in energy consumption, innovation and management. Based on the optoelectronic technology, optoelectronics, optical display and other professional knowledge, we cultivate students' basic skills and ability in research and development of optical display design and related devices and systems. Students graduated from this specialty can work in new energy development, in design, development and management work in their related specialty or other related fields or pursue related scientific research. They can also choose to pursue graduate studies in this specialty.

This major is a four-year undergraduate program. After graduation, students can receive a Bachelor of Science degree. We are also authorized to provide graduate training in this major that leads a master’s degree.
