Department of Physics
The Department of Physics at Colorado School of Mines, part of the College of Applied Science and Engineering, is dedicated to high-quality physics education for undergraduate and graduate students, and to advancing the world's knowledge in the areas of condensed matter physics, subatomic physics, and applied optics.
Our faculty and students conduct more than $6 million in externally funded research every year, with many projects associated with Mines' pioneering centers.
Research centers with strong connections to Physics include the Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (REMRSEC), the Golden Energy Computing Organization (GECO), the Center for Microintegrated Optics for Advanced Bioimaging and Control (MOABC), and the Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NuSEC).
Our faculty are consistently recognized for both their research and their teaching, while our graduate and undergraduate students are often the recipients of awards and grants.
