Overview

We have some of the best-equipped labs in the region, and you’ll graduate having experienced four years in lab-directed study — double the lab time of undergrad programs you’ll find at other schools. What better way to learn and discover than designing and building projects, analyzing problems, making them work and judging the outcome!

In fact, during your senior year as a Physics major, you’ll tackle a year-long research project in an area of interest to you. After crafting a proposal, the department will fund the project — and you’ll present the research that you conduct at the Nebraska Academy of Sciences. It’s a great resume- and career-building opportunity.

Some recent senior projects include:

  • HCEV: The Creation of an Electric Vehicle
  • Empirically Analyzing Washboard Roads
  • Thermodynamics of the Heart: Calculating Cardiac Output During Exercise
  • The Design and Testing of a Robotic Hand to Determine its Qualification as an Adequate Prosthetic Device
  • Investigating Orbital Trajectory
