Taylor’s ABET-accredited Physics and Engineering department provides a number of opportunities for professional growth and development. Our students have conducted graduate-level research for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the Air Force as undergraduates; participated in projects like the Central American water well drilling ministry (with the Earth & Environmental Science department); taken part in prestigious summer internships at major labs such as Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Argonne National Lab, Fermi Lab, and the Mayo Clinic; and been hired by world-renowned companies like CERN and RT Logic.
Wherever God is calling you after graduation—the industry, healthcare, education, mission field—our outstanding faculty will mentor you and help you prepare for your career.
