Though the Auburn campus is large, the Physics Department maintains a surprisingly high ratio of faculty members to our physics majors and graduate students. There are 23 full-time faculty and approximately 40 undergraduate majors and 40 graduate students. This means that each student receives the sort of individual attention that is usually only available at much smaler schools.
Research projects are currently underway in plasma physics, condensed matter physics and surface science, atomic physics, radiative physics and space physics. The research is done in teams that include faculty, postdoctoral students, graduate and undergraduate students.
In the past few years, Auburn has invested millions of dollars in labs and computational facilities where students and faculty do research. These include:
Auburn University - The main campus had an enrollment during fall of 2006 of 23,333. Auburn University offers degrees in 13 schools and colleges at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels.
College of Sciences and Mathematics - The College is comprised of 5 departments: Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Geology and Geography, Mathematics and Statistics, and Physics. The College is one of the largest at Auburn with more than 2,000 undergraduate students and 125 M.S. and 150 Ph.D. students studying curricula offered by the College.
Department of Physics - The Department has 23 full-time faculty, approximately 40 graduate students, and approximately 40 undergraduate physics majors. It is housed in two buildings, Allison Lab and Leach Science Center. For further information and to arrange for a visit, please call 334-844-4264 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
