Physics

The scope of the studies in physics - from nuclei to stars - is represented in the curriculum of UD's Physics Department and in student research, as well as in the research of individual faculty members.

 

UD Students Visit CERN with Dr. Flanagan

Anthony Pelster, Will Flanagan, and Aidan Medcalf inspect a prototype of the DUNE detector at CERN during assembly. This detector volume will be filled with 800 tons of liquid argon and create images of individual particles. UD is one of the 170+ institutions from 31 countries collaborating on the DUNE experiment.

Fermilab Neutrino Experiments

Department of Energy Secretary Perry is given a tour of Fermilab neutrino experiments by Will Flanagan (University of Dallas) and Jonathan Asaadi (University of Texas at Arlington).

Students who choose to major or concentrate in physics take courses that prepare them for graduate studies, teaching, medical school, and industry. The low student-to-faculty ratio means students are offered many opportunities to interact with professors in courses, laboratories, and research. In 2013 the department added a dual degree in electrical engineering program with the University of Texas at Arlington. The department also offers Astronomy, Physics & Technology and General Physics I and II as Core Curriculum courses.
