Why Choose Physics

Why Choose Physics?

IIT Department of Physics offers students all the advantages of a small, private school but with global reach. It gives students a rigorous, academically demanding education that is relevant and grounded in real-world experience. It also gives students personal attention and the opportunity to do important research as early as their sophomore year. The faculty works and conducts research all over the world, including CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, and world-class facilities near Chicago such as Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab. APS TV introduces you to a university that provides a top-notch education, research opportunities along with one-on-one attention.
