The Applied Physics and Computer Science program from Christopher Newport University is a dynamic place that is home to engineers and scientists who study and conduct research in a wide array of multidisciplinary science and high-tech fields.


Key Features

From physics to information science, the PCSE spectrum covers a broad range of distinct, yet interrelated engineering and science disciplines. We address many of the fundamental aspects of today’s high-tech world, and prepare students to become the problem solvers of tomorrow.

We condemn racism in all of its forms. We acknowledge that our academic disciplines have been shaped by the pervasive and systemic racism in our country. Therefore, we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all students regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, documentation status, disability, creed, gender or sexual orientation. We promise to engage in ongoing conversations and to listen to voices of people from marginalized groups about actions we can take to make our department more inclusive and to help fight racism.

Research areas of the Applied Physics and Computer Science program from Christopher Newport University include nuclear physics, astrophysics, robotics, sensor networking, artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems. The program’s flexibility enables students to prepare either for PhD programs or work in industry.


 Christopher Newport is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award degrees at the baccalaureate and master’s degree levels. SACSCOC is one of six regional accrediting commissions in the U.S.
