Sandia National LaboratoriesSandia National Laboratories

As a multidisciplinary national security laboratory, Sandia supports nuclear deterrence, its central mission. Today, the synergistic and interdependent relationship between our nuclear deterrence mission and broader national security missions empowers us to conduct the Labs’ national security missions successfully. It creates a challenging, vigorous scientific and engineering environment that has helped us attract and retain the new talent we need. Indeed, this symbiotic relationship is largely responsible for Sandia’s consistent and efficient delivery on its commitments to the nuclear weapons program.

New Mexico State University
Department of Physics

The Department of Physics is committed to: advancing experimental and theoretical physics; educating undergraduate and graduate student for careers in industry; government & academia; and assisting New Mexico's development through research and public service.

Along with education and research, on the main campus of NMSU, our researchers have a long and established collaborative history with national facilities. Other research, summer internships and assistantships are done at facilities such as Los Alamos National Laboratories, Sandia National Laboratories, ARGONNE, White Sands Missile Range and Jefferson Laboratories to name a few.

The education and training we give our students provide a broad background of knowledge and skills that enables them to pursue successful careers in industry, government, teaching, the military, and other fields. Our graduates continue to tell the department that they feel their experience here has served them very well. Most of the departmental faculty have active research programs supported by agencies of the U.S. government; these research grants total more than $2 million per year.
