What is Applied Science?

Applied Science is a discipline that applies existing technical knowledge to develop practical applications in fields such as technology, management, production, or invention.  Focusing on real world practices, applied science eschews theory for application with a particular emphasis on workforce development in a broad interdisciplinary background preparing students for both advanced graduate studies as well as direct participation as leaders in the technical workforce.
