What makes the Clarkson Physics Department unique is dealing with the behavior and interaction of matter, energy, space and time while leading technological development.
We believe that quality faculty produce a quality education. Our faculty utilize the most current education strategies and technologies when designing coursework to provide in-depth training in the fundamental areas of physics. Undergraduate and graduate curricula focus on developing the critical thinking skills and mathematical techniques necessary to solve a broad range of problems, including those of a highly interdisciplinary nature.
Research at the faculty, undergraduate and graduate level allows students to gain firsthand experience applying what they learn in class. We provide an expansive research environment that supports research in biological physics, cosmology, foundations of quantum mechanics, nanomaterials, optics, physics education, physics of fluids and more.
Facilities like Clarkson's Reynolds Observatory and the Physics Team Design Lab ensure that our students can access the sophisticated equipment they need to elevate their physics knowledge.
Preparing you for the world ahead, our curriculum is focused on bridging disciplines to offer a well-rounded education.
