Student in physics lab

In physics, we embrace the physical dimensions in space and time, from the smallest subatomic particles to the universe, from the slow drift of continents to the speed of light, from absolute zero to stellar temperatures, from low-frequency radio waves to gamma rays. We believe responsible citizens strive to understand the fundamental concepts of physics in order to make wise decisions about science and society.

Physics faculty offers a wide range of courses and research opportunities for students interested in electrical or mechanical engineering, pre-med, and even for artists who want to make holograms.
