Work and learn side-by-side in laboratories designed for experiments in electronics, holography, quantum optics, superconductivity, nuclear physics and more. Every day, on your way to class, you'll also walk past a glass case displaying a letter of recommendation from Albert Einstein for legendary Xavier professor Boris Podolsky. Now that's cool by any quantum measurement.
Students have a faculty mentor to assist them in research
Small class sizes give you the attention you deserve and opportunities to conduct research with faculty. Present your results at national meetings to gain the experience you need.
Our facilities provide innovative technology for hands-on learning. Get cosmic in the astronomical observatory or spark your imagination in our wide range of laboratories including holography, quantum optics, and atomic and nuclear physics.
Don't be surprised when your professor announces a field trip to the Cincinnati Observatory, national labs such as Argonne, Oak Ridge, and Fermilab, and high-tech companies such as Siemens and Thyssen.
