1 Physics Department Presentation CSM Summer 2011 Retreat Chair: Chuck De Leone

2 Programs Offered and Number of Students (Fall 2011) Bachelors of Science in Applied Physics (General)27 Applied Physics Option Declared16 Applied Electronics Option Declared6 Double Major1 Total UBACH Majors50 Significant Physics Minor accessed by CS, Math, Biology, Chemistry

3 GE and Service Courses Service Courses for all other science departments, Kinesiology, Liberal Studies, Linguistics Masters, etc… (Phys 101/102, 201/202, 205/206, ID 381, PHYS 356) roughly 250 seats Lower Division GES (fulfills B1 and B3): GES 100 (3 Unit Physical Science Lecture), GES 101 (3 Unit Physical Science Lecture and Lab), GES 105 (co-taught), GES 110 (1 Unit B3 lab) roughly 302 seats Upper Division BB: PHYS 351 (How Things Work), PHYS 356 (Physics of Sound and Music), and ASTR 342 (Astronomy) roughly 240 seats All offered service courses, GES, and Upper-Div BB is basically filled for Fall 2011 with significant unmet demand

4 Future Plans Biophysics Option Physics Education Option (funded) Taking applied electronics further Masters Program?

11 Tsui Lab

12 Student Assistant Money Lab Support Some outside organizational/course support (large course funds) LA Program

13 Goals/Challenges Continue to increase the number of students/graduates in/from our Applied Physics Major and Physics Minor. Continue to offer excellent curriculum to our majors and in our service courses in an environment with fixed or shrinking resources. Continue our commitment to high quality undergraduate research experiences for our students, and other CSM students Funding tenant improvements in newly allocated research space so faculty and students can carry out high quality research.
