ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE: PHYSICS
Students who complete this program are prepared to pursue the bachelor's degree in physics or engineering. Through systematic observation and experimentation, physicists describe in mathematical terms the structure of the universe and the interaction of matter and energy. Physicists develop theories that describe the fundamental forces of nature. Most physicists work in research and development. Some do basic research to increase scientific knowledge while others do applied research and help develop new products. Academic advisement for this program is provided by the School of Sciences.
