A degree in physics and astronomy
Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us, and the world beyond us. Advances in technology are providing above-average job growth in areas that require strong proficiency in science and mathematics, making the choice of a degree in physics and astronomy a wise one.
Detectors built at Wayne State installed into the ALICE detector at the CERN-LHC
Major upgrades of the ALICE experiment at the CERN-LHC accelerator facility intended to increase the data readout speed and sharpen the data resolution are in progress. One such upgrade to the ALICE Time Projection Chamber (TPC), ALICE's main detector, has been completed. This upgrade includes new detectors fabricated and tested at Wayne State University.
