The Physics & Astronomy Department at Siena College is experiencing a period of growth and revitalization. Our faculty members are leading exciting research programs in astronomy, physics, engineering, and science education - many of which are funded by the National Science Foundation and NASA. Also, and probably as a result, we have increased the number of Siena students studying physics. We are particularly proud of the increasing number of women who are pursuing physics and astronomy degrees at Siena.
