Overview and Welcome Message

The mission of the Department of Physics and Engineering is to provide a quality high education and training in physics and engineering to students of diverse background. The students are prepared to achieve professional success and leadership status, opening opportunities to a highly demanding multidisciplinary market.

The Department of Physics and Engineering is also home to the Optical Sciences Center for Applied Research (OSCAR), a major research center specializing in optical sciences and their broad applications. The center houses the Center for Research and Education in the Optical Sciences and Applications (CREOSA),  an NSF-CREST center, and the Center for Applied Optics for Space Sciences (CAOSS), a NASA URC center.  Undergraduate and graduate (M.S. and Ph.D.) students with keen interest in, among others, optics, lasers, imaging, photonics, and space sciences are invited to apply to our programs with possibility to receive financial support, one-on-one faculty mentoring, training in state-of-the-art technologies, and opportunities for professional development.

We look forward to meeting you and having the opportunity to welcome you to our department and university community.
