 The preliminary oral exam committee consists of four members, three from Physics and one from outside Physics ​ (for example, MIfA, EECS, CEMS, etc.). If there is a minor, the outside member should be from the minor field. ​ Beside the adviser, there should be both an experimental and a theoretical faculty member in the student'​s subfield of physics. The preliminary oral exam committee consists of four members, three from Physics and one from outside Physics ​ (for example, MIfA, EECS, CEMS, etc.).
