Physics Journals

These are just a few of the physics journals Kettering has access to through subscription.


Applied Physics Thesis

The Bachelor of Science in Physics culminates in a thesis. The library has a Digital Thesis Archive, accessible on-campus only, with a searchable listing of all theses written since 2003. Example titles of Applied Physics theses:

  • Implementation of Transreflective Films for Automotive Lighting Applications

  • Simulation and Modeling of Annealing Twin Microstructures

When students are ready, the Center for Culminating Undergraduate Experiences (CCUE) assists them with thesis preparation.
