Physics


Advances in physics lead to new technologies, from the electronics industry based on quantum physics, to the global positioning system based on the theory of relativity, and computer hardware based on materials physics. Yeshiva University’s Physics Department specializes in solving problems on quantum information, mechanical and electronics materials behavior, propagation of waves, biological matter, dynamics, and hardware and software development.  These activities are of intrinsic interest from a fundamental point of view, but also are geared toward engineering applications. With robust knowledge of computer software and hardware development, our students gain access to rewarding jobs in the high technology field including developing their own high-tech startups.
