Student Research

Undergraduate research is an important, and popular, component of student education in physics. It can be performed for credit, for pay, or just for fun. While research with faculty members in the department during the academic year or summer is prevalent, many students participate in summer research internships or summer job internships on University campuses, in government laboratories and with corporate facilities throughout the United States.
