The Department comprises ten full-time faculty members, and a staff member who serves as systems administrator and laboratory & academic coordinator. We are research-oriented with active efforts in theoretical, computational and experimental condensed matter physics (soft matter, complex fluids, nanomaterials, single molecule electronics and biophysics) and physics education research.
We offer M.S. and Ph.D. graduate programs and an undergraduate major in Physics, including an option in Optical Science and Engineering and double-major programs with Mathematics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.
