Applied Physics Graduate Program
The Applied Physics Graduate Program is a joint PhD program between the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences that offers research opportunities with faculty in the departments of Physics & Astronomy, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, and Materials Science & Engineering. The Engineered Quantum Systems research area unites the interests of both experimental and theoretical research groups actively investigating applications of quantum physics.
Undergraduate Research Opportunity
The Northwestern University Materials Research Science & Engineering Center offers a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program over a 9-week period each summer. REU students have the opportunity to contribute to a research project led by a center faculty member and participate in interdisciplinary research group meetings, expanding their science and engineering experience into a range of fields.
Summer Research Experience For Teachers
The Northwestern University Materials Research Science & Engineering Center provides a Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program each summer. Middle-school, high-school, and community-college teachers are eligible to apply. Participating teachers engage in research, develop a network of scientific colleagues, learn scientific and technological developments, and discover ways to transfer this knowledge to their classroom.
