Eau Claire Advantage

  • Our classrooms are filled with respected faculty scholars who love to teach. Since professors put students' learning first, students get individual attention in and out of the classroom.

  • There are typically fewer than 10 students in an advanced course.

  • The Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society, have active chapters on campus. These organizations provide yet another way to connect with other students with similar interests and goals.

  • The program's strong reputation attracts many top students from throughout the Midwest, which means you will share classrooms with motivated students who are ready to take on challenging projects.

  • Physics students have access to outstanding facilities, such as the Casey Observatory, the L.E. Phillips Planetarium, an optics research lab, surface science research labs, thin-film research lab, electron microscopy lab, synchrotron radiation center, electronics lab, machine shop and a 24-inch computer-controlled telescope at Hobbs Observatory.

  • Many UW-Eau Claire physics students have summer research experiences at prestigious sites throughout the country.

  • UW-Eau Claire consistently has earned recognition in U.S. News & World Report magazine's Best Colleges guide, which in 2005 ranked us among best public regional universities in the Midwest and in the top tier of all regional Midwestern universities, both public and private.
Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
