The Department of Applied Physical Sciences

Welcome to the web site for the Department of Applied Physical Sciences (APSc). APSc is the first new STEM department in the UNC College of Arts and Sciences in nearly 40 years. APSc will serve as an organizing center for a variety of application-driven research and teaching.

As of July 1, 2013, APSc is the new home of the graduate program in Materials Science (MTSC) and has assumed the administrative and management responsibilities for activities previously associated with the Institute of Advanced Materials, Nanoscience and Technology (IAM), including the Chapel Hill Analytical and Nanofabrication Laboratory (CHANL) shared user facility.

In addition to its expanded role in applications driven research, APSc will continue to coordinate, promote and publicize research across the UNC campus and beyond in polymer science and materials, including nanomaterials and nanobiosciences—areas of critical and growing importance, working closely with partner departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, across UNC Chapel Hill, and at other universities.
