Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Physics in North America

See PhD Programs in Applied Physics in North America 2019

Applied Physics

A PhD is the abbreviation for Doctor of philosophy. This degree is a post graduate program delivered to a high level student researcher who has done deep research in a specific field or subject.

Applied physics uses the science in the development and expansion of practical applications that affect research, technology and society itself. Industries that program graduates may choose to focus on include fiber optics, satellites, microchip technology, mobile telecommunications, aerospace, semiconductors, information technology and lasers.

The United States of America is located on the continent of North America. It is the third largest country by size in the world. It has a relatively short history compared to other world nations, has one of the world's largest economies, and has one of the world's most diverse populations.
