[APPH 4901] Seminar: Problems in Applied Physics

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The Applied Physics Department knew what they were doing when they got Prof Stormer to lead the seminar. He's one of the friendliest professors i've had a class with, and his sense of humor and collection of anecdotes keeps class entertaining.

The Applied Physics Seminar is probably the easiest course required for the major, at least at the Junior level. For the first half of the semester, sessions consisted of the whole class attempting to solve some sort of random problem-- posed by professor Stormer at the beginning of class-- to the nearest order of magnitude. The second half of the semester consisted of the Seniors giving presentations on various aspects of applied physics (anything from Quantum Dot lasers, to keeping warm in the winter).

Workload:

As Junior, attendance 1x a week.
As a Senior, attendance 2x a week, GRE review Qs 1x a week for first half, presentations for the second half.
