Physics and Engineering Physics

We are a department of eight full-time faculty, one part-time faculty (currently a University administrator), and five adjunct faculty Applied Optics Labwho are dedicated to the education and growth of our students. Class sizes are small and our faculty know each of our students well. As an undergraduate department, we strive to share our interest and excitement in physics and engineering physics with them.  

Our faculty are involved in research in:

  • Applied Optics
  • Condensed Matter Physics (theory and experiment)
  • High Energy Particle Physics
  • Medical Physics
  • Molecular and Nanoelectronic device modeling
  • Nuclear Physics (theory)
  • Polymer Physics
  • Seismology 

Believing in the value of research for undergraduates, we encourage our students to actively participate in faculty research groups.
