Physics 101

In 1919, UB’s Department of Physics was formed. One hundred and one academic years later, the department has conferred thousands of bachelors, masters and PhD degrees. Although the centennial celebration was postponed last year due to the pandemic, the commemorative spirit is still strong. To properly celebrate this momentous occasion, please join us for a virtual sharing of engaging stories, impressive research and creative initiatives from current and emeritus faculty members, alumni, students and friends of the department.

Please let us know if you would like to share a personal or professional anecdote related to the Department of Physics at the event on June 5. Contact department chair, Murthy Ganapathy, PhD at sg82@buffalo.edu or (716) 645-2906.
