Opportunities inside and outside the classroom

There are many great things happening in the department that will enhance your education and set you on a path toward your goals.

Ways to get involved

We want our physics majors to gain a first-hand appreciation of physics that goes beyond the textbooks.


Simpson can get you to your goal of a career in physics or engineering

When you graduate with a physics degree, a physics-engineering degree or start in the pre-engineering dual degree program, you will be qualified for in-demand jobs in research and development, teaching, quantitive reasoning, data analytics and laboratory science to name a few.

Quality graduate and engineering schools are also seeking Simpson students. Some recent places students have continued their education include Iowa State University, University of Colorado, University of Notre Dame, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Nebraska and University of Texas.
