Physics & Astronomy


The Physics Department offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics, with concentrations in three research areas: laser physics, high pressure physics (in collaboration with LLNL and LANL), and condensed matter physics. The Physics Department also offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Astronomy. The astronomers make use of space telescopes such as the Hubble Space Telescope, Swift, Chandra Xray Observatory and XMM-Newton Observatory, etc. to conduct research. The department’s experimental research programs are supported by fully equipped laboratories and mechanical, electronic and glass shops. The department is well equipped with state-of-the-art computing facilities, which allow for performing virtually any modeling and computer simulation.
