The UVU Physics Department has several opportunities for undergraduate research. Currently we have students working on projects in particle physics, geophysics, semiconductor physics and in physics education.
The department is in the process of putting together a small semiconductor technology laboratory for student projects in many areas from sensor science to photovoltaics.
Students wishing to participate in physics research should contact a faculty member directly to discuss options that are available. The following list of faculty and their expertise may help you find a suitable project:
