Department of Physics
Welcome to the U-Albany Physics Department. Our department has about a dozen faculty, 45 graduate and 140 undergraduate majors. Faculty and students in the department carry out research in a broad range of fields - from a new understanding of quantum mechanics to the search for fundamental particles to robotics and medical imaging. Fundamentally, physicists develop models for understanding how the world works. The training is a basis for a broad range of careers that rely on analytical problem solving. These fields are as diverse as cosmology, engineering, software development, and financial analysis.
