Undergraduate Research

Research that’s advancing the field

Through unique undergraduate research experiences, our students have the chance to take their learning beyond the classroom – working on real-world challenges.

Working alongside professors, you’ll build your resume, develop practical skills that set you apart, and have the chance to publish your work for the world to see.

Our department conducts research in the following areas: computational and theoretical physics; low dimensional and complex materials; magnetic properties of materials; physics and science education; low-dimensional structures and surfaces and more.

Each summer, several research fellowships are awarded to students. Typically, fellows are awarded a stipend of $4000 for 10 weeks of research during the summer. Along with the stipend, a modest equipment and supplies budget of $500 is also available to those engaged in experimental work.
