Physics

Physics is devoted to the discovery and exploration of the most basic physical laws governing our material universe. The working physicist attempts to express these laws in their most elegant mathematical form, so that they can be applied to predict the behavior of all forms of matter and energy, in physical systems that range from the subatomic level of quarks, gluons, nuclei, and atoms, all the way out to the astrophysical level of planets, stars, black holes, galaxies, and larger scale structures of the universe. The knowledge obtained in various experimental and theoretical investigations of physical phenomena forms the foundation for many modern technologies. For example there are lasers used in high-speed communications and micro-surgery, the plastic electronics used in modern computer displays, the magnetic behavior of the thin films used for computer hard drives, and the radiation detectors and optical elements used in the Hubble space telescope. The fundamental knowledge gained by physicists helps to shape and improve the quality of modern life.

The Missouri S&T physics department is dedicated to providing opportunities for undergraduates to participate in cutting-edge, nationally funded scientific research programs supervised by departmental faculty. Topics currently being investigated by Missouri S&T undergraduates include collisions between electrons, atoms, and ions; the magnetic properties of nanoscale thin films and other highly magnetic materials; transparent conducting oxides; photonic materials; quantum phase transitions; and atmospheric changes induced by manmade pollutants, such as those found in acid rain or in the exhaust generated by high altitude aircraft and space vehicle launches.

The department encourages its undergraduates to get involved in the many research projects available, and many students who participate in research go on to present their work at research competitions throughout the state and at national scientific meetings. Missouri S&T physics students regularly win prizes for their research accomplishments in the annual Fuller competitions.

After receiving a solid foundation in the basic physics governing the behavior of matter, energy, and radiation, the undergraduate physics major is able to choose among many advanced level courses to satisfy their particular interests in various fields of modern physics. Courses available to upper level physics majors include optics, astrophysics, subatomic physics, general relativity, solid state physics, laser physics, chaos, and computational physics. The curriculum also includes advanced laboratory courses where students design and participate in original research with other physics majors. Many additional technical courses are available to Physics majors in applied areas of other disciplines, such as computer science, electrical engineering, and the biological sciences.

Your undergraduate program will cover a range of fundamental topics and will include substantial laboratory training. In addition, the program is designed with many electives that allow physics majors to tailor their undergraduate education to their own particular interests. As a physics major you will have the flexibility to develop a program that best suits your interest and needs. There are 50 credit hours in physics, 23 in mathematics, 9 in chemistry, and 3 in computer science. Also required are 24 credit hours in communication, humanities, and social sciences. The rest of the 128 required hours, 19 hours, are free electives that you select in consultation with your advisor.

Many physics majors choose to use their electives to study other technical areas, such as mathematics, computer science, or electrical engineering. Some students get dual bachelor’s degrees, for example, with their second degree in computer science, chemistry, or mathematics. Because there is considerable overlap in degree requirements between physics and other technical and scientific disciplines, a dual degree usually requires no more than one extra semester of undergraduate study. The best curriculum for each student seeking a dual degree is determined in planning sessions with his or her advisor.

An undergraduate degree in physics provides opportunities for a wide range of careers. About two- thirds of our graduates go on to graduate school, many at some of the most prestigious first-tier schools in the country. In addition many of those who complete their physics education with a bachelor’s degree have been very successful in finding exciting employment opportunities in today’s high-tech industries. Missouri S&T physics graduates have gone on to lead and manage major research efforts at leading industrial companies, to be professors and chairmen at leading academic universities, and to work in areas ranging from law and medicine to ecophysics and astrophysics.

All interested or prospective students considering a career in physics are invited to visit the campus and tour our research laboratories and classrooms to obtain a better picture of the exciting opportunities available.
