Off-Campus Research

After our students have worked on research projects in our Physics Department for a year or two, we encourage them to apply for summer employment at other universities, national laboratories, or companies. That way they learn how different institutions operate, they gain exposure to a wide variety of physics and engineering topics, and they potentially set themselves up for future academic and professional pursuits. The posters at the right are good examples of the types of off-campus projects our students have worked on in recent summers.
