I am extremely proud to serve as the Chair of the Department of Physics at Tennessee Technological University (TTU). The department prides itself in having developed an outstanding environment within which to pursue an undergraduate degree in physics. We have a high-quality, rigorous, degree program that provides a firm grounding in the core areas of both classical and modern physics. This is confirmed by the outstanding performance of our students on the ETS Major Field Test (MFT). Our alumni overwhelmingly agree that attaining a B.S. in Physics from TTU has provided them with a firm foundation on which to build a successful and fulfilling career.

I am also proud of our faculty members, who are firmly committed to their role as educators, and are also first-rate researchers, with expertise in either nuclear physics or physics education. The department has a long-standing commitment to involve undergraduates in research and has been nationally recognized for its efforts in this direction.

If you are looking for a high-quality physics degree program that will give you a great first step on your career ladder, then TTU would likely be a good fit for you. More details about our program, and about the department, can be found on these pages. Also, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
