Department Overview

Physics and Biophysics involves the study of fundamental principles in science and materials in the world around us. These degrees allow you to develop the analytical and problem-solving skills that are universally sought by graduate schools, professional programs (such as mechanical and electrical engineering, computer science, data science, medicine, dentistry, or pharmacy), as well as by employers. Physics graduates have the preparation to tackle many emerging world problems that require both detailed analysis and novel design approaches. Studies involve fundamental physical systems as well as applications in nuclear physics, materials, fluids and microfluids, electronics, optics, and biophysics. Students develop innovative research projects in courses, go on internships, and participate in research with the faculty. Student research engages in topics such as sensor development, cancer research, materials science, microfluidics, and nuclear physics. The skills developed are highly sought after for both continuing postgraduate studies or post-graduate employment. The diverse faculty in the department allows for developing of a valuable array of skills. Our graduates leave with a high rate of success in their chosen paths. The availability of selected concentrations, upper-level elective studies, and research allows students to match their educational path with their career goals.
