Teaching Labs

The physics department offers students many teaching laboratories, where classroom theories are put into practice through real-world experiments and simulations. From electricity and magnetism to optics and lasers, our labs feature cutting-edge equipment and facilities. Our commitment to hands-on learning ensures that students’ in-lab experiences will be enriching, helping to cement each learner's understanding of lecture topics.

Not only do students benefit academically from our teaching labs, but they also provide physics-department majors with employment opportunities. Upper-class undergraduate students, and all levels of graduate students, frequently work as lab teaching assistants. These are paid positions that provide additional professional experience and, at the same time, serve to reinforce basic physics concepts.
