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.
Ohio Region American Physical Society Fall 2015 Meeting
The CSU Department of Physics is hosting the Ohio Region American Physical Society Fall 2015 Meeting. The meeting will take place in the CSU Student Center, on Friday October 16th and Saturday, October 17th. This event brings together scientists from Ohio, Michigan and western Pennsylvania. The theme of the meeting is focused on "Physics in Biology and Medicine". The event will be held concurrently with the fall meetings of the American Association of Physics Teachers Ohio Section and of the Society of Physics Students Zone 7.
