Welcome!We want to take this opportunity to briefly introduce you to our Department. We offer stimulating educational and research programs for both undergraduate and graduate students. For undergraduates, we have a rich variety of degree programs including biomedical physics (with premed option), or applied physics and engineering. Both can be examined in more detail (along with other possibilities) on the undergraduate page. Students taking classes can also find a variety of help and information on this page. We also offer our undergraduate students access to Northeastern’s world-famous model of Cooperative Education, which gives them unparalleled opportunities to explore and gain real-world work experience. For graduate study, we offer intensive and well-funded research programs in theoretical and experimental particle physics, condensed matter and nanophysics, biological physics, and network science. Our faculty are world renowned scientists working at the frontiers of their respective fields. We welcome you to browse our web-site, check out our Newsletter and enjoy the videos below, which help to capture some of the excitement our department has to offer.
