Department of Physics

The Department of Physics offers Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in physics, including degrees with teacher certification, as well as Master’s of Science degrees in physics and in materials physics. An innovative, multidisciplinary PhD in Materials Science, Engineering, and Commercialization (MSEC) is also available to students who continue beyond a Master's degree. Faculty in the department pursue a variety of exciting research interests with focus areas including materials physics, physics education research, and astronomy. The department also makes a strong effort to engage all students, both undergraduate and graduate, in supporting both the teaching and research missions of the department by offering multiple opportunities to contribute to our department as laboratory instructors, learning assistants, or student workers.

Dear Colleague,
 
Attached is a jpg flyer announcing the NSF sponsored REU summer research program at TCU for 2018.  We hope that you will post the flyer or forward it to your students. We ask also that you encourage your students, especially women and those from underrepresented minorities, to apply for this exciting summer research opportunity.  
Our REU deadline is February 19.
More information and on-line application form are available at our web site

 As participants in the TCU Physics and Astronomy REU program, students will:

  • Collaborate on a research project alongside faculty and graduate students.
  • Learn about working in the aerospace industry through field trips.
  • Develop skills in giving a research presentation.
  • Participate in a mini-workshop on research ethics.
  • Receive a $5000 stipend, free dorm housing, travel support to/from TCU and home, and paid travel expenses to a scientific conference to present the results of their research.


Students will work with faculty in the TCU Departments of Physics and Astronomy or Chemistry or Engineering on research in the fields of Materials Science, Bio-Physics, Observational Astronomy, Theoretical Modeling and Simulation.

Also, we are still exccepting applications for our Ph.D. Program:

Graduate Deadline February 1st (though late applications will be considered)https://physics.tcu.edu/prospective-students


Let me know if you have any questions.
 
Thanks,
