AboutThe physics department at IUPUI is a tight-knit group of faculty and students dedicated to learning together and discovering the workings of the universe. Our undergraduate and graduate programs feature small, interactive classes that will challenge you, and opportunities to join cutting edge research projects.
Students here reap the benefits of small classes, an interactive learning environment and challenging material and lab work. As early as their freshman year, our undergraduates are able to participate in research with renowned faculty. Our undergraduate students have co-authored research papers and presented at national conferences.
We're a community of learners in which students thrive. Students support each other through peer-lead mentoring, providing a unique environment where students become leaders by teaching others. Physics club, volunteer programs and intramural sports are just a few of the opportunities for students to get involved outside of the classroom.
We're great scientists and we're innovative teachers. As a department, and a university, we've developed teaching methods that engage and encourage students--and are used at universities throughout the United States. Simply put, we care about our students and want them to succeed.
Lastly, we're one of seven departments in the School of Science, situated in the heart of Indianapolis, near five hospitals, the Indiana University schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Engineering & Technology. We're also surrounded by countless science and technology companies. Through internships and undergrad research, our students have opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, across campus, and across the academic and business communities. Our graduates emerge as well-rounded scientists whose experiences have prepared them to solve the problems of the future.
