Award for Improving Undergraduate Physics Education Awardees

University of Alabama at Birmingham (2023 Recipient)
This research-driven, student-centric physics department prepares students for 21st century careers by seamlessly integrating purposeful research and education with workforce development, life-long learning, and cultural inclusion. All of its majors are given the opportunity to work in faculty research labs at UAB and in Europe, through an NSF-supported International Research Experiences for Students program. By organizing the Physics degree into five job-focused tracks supported by a Faculty Mentoring System, and with two new physics and data science and research-intensive physics accelerated BS/MS (ABM) programs, UAB helps students develop an individual program of study to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace while pursuing their passion. Track faculty mentors connect students with research while providing academic support and career guidance. This department also impacts a much broader and diverse student audience than ever before through transforming online teaching into innovative Remotely Accessible Interdisciplinary STEMM Education (RAISE), developing student social networks, and supporting Alabama high-school teachers. Since 2015, this department has witnessed an increase to historic heights of both the number of physics majors and the overall number of students taught. UAB Physics is now moving to a newly-built Science & Engineering Complex, a state-of-the art interdisciplinary building designed to empower graduates to impact the future.

Nearly 75% of IWU physics students work with faculty members on research projects, and it offers 12 different advanced lab courses, making it exceptionally strong in this area. Approximately half of its graduates go on to pursue a PhD in science, another third do graduate work in engineering, and the remaining third enter the workforce directly, usually pursuing careers in engineering, programming, teaching, sales, or finance.
