Physics & Engineering

Explore the fundamental laws of nature.

Investigate the most challenging problems in science and technology and apply their insights and discoveries to deepen the world’s understanding of the physical universe and be part of the driving force for new technologies.


Skip the TA

Unlike at other, larger schools, PUC students are able to get hands-on experience with high tech modern lab equipment from Day One, without having to go through a Teaching Assistant to get there.


On-Campus Observatory

The department of physics manages the Young Observatory, a fully functional and modern observatory a short walk from the heart of campus. Talk to your professors about access.


Collaborate with Prestigious Laboratories

Dr. Andrianarijaona (Dr. Vola) has received two National Science Foundation grants, allowing the department to collaborate on experiments with prestigious national laboratories including Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge, giving PUC’s undergrad students exclusive access to experiments and scientists across the country.

PQ Rise To Offer Science Experiences for High School Students

PQ Rise will be held for the first time during the summer of 2019 as an extension of PUC’s popular PacificQuest science experience. PacificQuest initially began as a program designed for middle school students. The immersive PQ Rise experience was created as a next-step program for those interested in STEM fields, aiming to provide freshman and sophomore high school students with a hands-on introduction to the sciences.
