Physics and Astronomy at BYU

Dr. Peter Roming, a research scientist at Penn State said, “BYU Physics and Astronomy students are undeniably some of the best prepared and most highly demanded graduates available.” This is largely because of the research opportunities available to our students, both as undergraduates and graduates.

All students have the opportunity to learn from our 32-member faculty by participating in faculty-directed research programs. These programs are enhanced by outstanding facilities and instrumentation, including several anechoic and reverberation chambers, transmission electronic and atomic force microscopes, an X-ray diffractometer, and a new 0.9-m telescope at the West Mountain Observatory.
