Department of Physics and Engineering

Bethel's Department of Physics and Engineering consists of seven full-time faculty members and has consistently ranked in the top twenty institutions in the U.S. in terms of the number of yearly physics graduates from an undergraduate-only program. It is a cooperating member of an experiment at CERN. The department also has advanced laboratory facilities in Atomic and Molecular Optics, Nanotechnology, and Fluid Mechanics. Recently seven labs totaling over 6,000 sq. ft. have been added to facilitate the addition of majors in Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Engineering. The faculty emphasize mentoring of undergraduate students and collaboration with them in publishable research. The department is nationally known for its open-ended, project-based approach to teaching and is a seven-time host of ALPhA's Laboratory Immersions, sponsored by the NSF. Funding of research has occurred primarily through thirteen grants (eight from NSF) in the last eleven years, the Minnesota Space Grant Consortium, and internal funding sources. In the past, many of the department's students participated in a Dual-Degree Engineering Program with other universities, but with the recent additions of Electrical, Computer, and Mechanical Engineering, almost all will be finishing their majors at Bethel. Another popular path for students who desire careers in engineering is to major in Physics, Applied Physics, or a corresponding engineering field and then enter graduate engineering programs.

Bethel seeks to recruit, retain, develop, and support a diverse workforce who contributes to our educational and Christ-centered mission. Bethel encourages candidates to apply who can assist the University to develop a faculty that reflects the diversity of people in God's kingdom through a variety of ethnicities, cultures, and lived experiences.
