Purpose

The Applied Physics Minor introduces the fundamental concepts of physics and applies them to the high-tech environment of digital diagnostic imaging. The program stresses transferable skills and critical thinking, and will supplement students' majors to provide further opportunities for employment within the health-care and associated fields.

Background

The emphasis within physics on fundamental concepts and analytic training enables students to apply their understanding to new scientific and technological frontiers that are developing rapidly at the interface between more traditional disciplines. This Minor would prepare students for a career in iniaging, biomedical technology or bealth­ related fields. It would be particularly effective in combination with a major in Computer Science, Math or Biology. No courses are required beyond those already in place, or planned collaboratively.
