Physics and Engineering Physics

Applied Optics Lab

We are a department of nine full-time faculty, one part-time faculty (currently a University administrator), a lecturer, and seven adjunct faculty who 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
  • Astrophysics
  • Condensed Matter Physics (theory and experiment)
  • High Energy Particle Theory
  • Medical Physics
  • Molecular and Nanoelectronic device modeling
  • Nuclear Theory
  • Polymer Physics
  • Seismology

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