Physics and Space Sciences
Message from the Department Head
Welcome to the Department of Physics and Space Sciences! If you like science and are curious about how the universe works, then we are the place for you. Our graduates have a wide range of career options, including working at universities, national labs, high-tech companies, the federal government, and even on Wall Street. Physicists, astronomers and space scientists are successful because they are problem solvers, unafraid to try new things.
At Florida Tech, you will have the opportunity to work closely with your professors, both inside and outside the classroom, ensuring that you will receive a top-rate education. We are also a place where you learn by doing. Here, you can do real, hands-on research, giving you valuable experience working as a scientist.
Despite being a small school, we have one of the larger undergraduate physics and space sciences programs in the country, which means that you will be surrounded by people with the same interests as you. We have also kept our class sizes small, so you will know your professors and they will know you. Come join us in Florida where you can learn to be a world-class scientist (and enjoy our picnics on the beach).
Hope to see you at Florida Tech soon!
Joseph Dwyer, Ph.D.
Head, Physics & Space Sciences
