WELCOME TO CSU PHYSICS

Our department offers a wide range of courses and research. As a relatively small department, our students, faculty and staff interact directly with each other. As a result, our graduates are highly qualified for a career in science and technology. Our research varies from medical imaging to statistical physics, and many branches of physics in between.
