About the Department

The Department of Engineering Physics (ENP) is one of six academic departments in the Graduate School of Engineering and Management of the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) located on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), Ohio. 

ENP provides Department of Defense (DoD)-focused graduate education and research through Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs in Applied Physics, Atmospheric Sciences (MS only), Materials Science, Nuclear Engineering, and Optical Sciences and Engineering. We also offer graduate certificate programs in Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) and Nuclear Weapons Effects, Policy, and Proliferation (NWEPP). We are the Air Force’s primary provider of graduate education in physics and nuclear engineering. Military officers from sister services, DoD civilians, and DoD contractors may also qualify for admission.

As you browse our site, you will see a diverse set of curricula and research. This diversity makes us a unique, applied program. Our faculty consists of 39 full-time members, five professors emeritus, and adjunct members. This faculty is supported by a cadre of laboratory technicians and research staff scientists. Our faculty-to-student ratios and support cadre are two of our strengths, allowing for high levels of interaction both in the classroom and laboratory. AFIT’s student body of military officers and civilian students is unique and synergistic, resulting in an intellectually stimulating learning environment. Our students describe our curricula as rich, in-depth, and challenging and our research efforts as robust, applied, and solution-focused.
