Undergraduate research opportunities exist in the department in the following areas:
- High Energy Physics (Experimental and Theoretical)
- Computational Physics
- High Performance Cluster and Grid Computing
Physics majors can obtain REU summer research internships at a number of prestigious research institutions.
One of our faculty members (Dr. Akhtar Mahmood) is a member of the high profile ATLAS high energy physics experiment at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN (European Center for Particle Physics). LHC, the world’s largest “atom smasher” will recreate the primordial universe on a small scale and explore the fundamental structure of matter and the basic forces of nature.
