Gyorgy Korniss Department Head

The Department of Physics, Applied Physics, and Astronomy at Rensselaer aims to create a community of students, researchers, staff, and faculty dedicated to providing a collaborative, open, and vibrant environment for the education of undergraduate and graduate students in all areas relevant to modern physics and their relevant connection with current and future societal needs. By providing a rigorous and thorough introduction to fundamental aspects of physics, the department offers an ideal preparation rooted in the use of a subtle blend of conventional and innovative teaching to all students to become active and productive members of society. The undergraduate program promotes the early embedding of students in research groups where they directly play a role in cutting-edge research, in diverse areas such as condensed matter physics, astronomy, particle physics, optics, among others. Similarly, the graduate program is positioned within the tradition of research excellence that defines the Institute as a premier place for the training of the scientific leaders of tomorrow, in Academia and in Industry.
