Concentrations

Optics Experiments at NTU Physics

Undergraduates majoring in Physics or Applied Physics may opt to pursue a concentration in one area of physics or applied physics. At graduation, the School will issue a certificate acknowledging completion of the concentration. There are four concentrations: Nanotechnology, Optical Technology, Semiconductor Technology, and Biophysics / Medical Physics.

To fulfill the requirements of a concentration, the student must take and pass three specific courses, as described below:
