The Physics Department at Wright State University is an average-sized
physics department where students are engaged and an integral part
of the community.
Through their studies, research and community involvement,
the 40+ undergraduate students and 20+ MS students
work with the 15+ faculty on a daily basis.
All full-time faculty have PhD's.
As an undergraduate student, you have a wide variety of programs from straight physics to concentrations in computation, nanotechnology, and education.
As a graduate student, you can choose between a Master's in Physics or a Master's of Science in Teaching or an interdisciplinary PhD.
Our physics program is very applied,
with good opportunities for collaborating or even doing an internship
high-tech companies and the Air Force Research Lab next door.
Our faculty not only teach but carry out pioneering research in a wide variety of areas such as atmospheric science, biophysics, geophysics, nanotechnology, physics education and semiconductors.
Many are internationally recognized experts in their disciplines.
This is demonstrated by the presence of
1 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fellow,
2 American Physical Society (APS) Fellows,
and 1 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
We have established one of the world's few research clusters in
terahertz science and technology.
The physics department at WSU is relatively young (45+ years in 2010)
and is currently in a growth mode.
Most measures (e.g., number of student applications, number of students,
number of faculty, number of peer-reviewed publications,
number of grants, ...)
have increased by over 50% in the last 5 years.
