Department Chair: Dr. Kevin Cornelius
Since physics is basic to other disciplines in the sciences and in engineering, our curriculum is designed to prepare students for a number of options after graduation. Many of our students pursue graduate work in physics directed toward employment in research in government, including laboratories, or teaching. Others work in related fields, such as Biophysics or Geophysics. A number of our students go directly to work after receiving a bachelor’s degree. These students benefit greatly from the physics option in engineering. This option is a value to the student who may be undecided about future work in engineering or physics or who pursues graduate work. Students undecided about these options will find our faculty informed and readily available to assist in making these important decisions.
