The Department of Physics and Astronomy at SJSU prepares students for a variety of
careers in the high-tech sector of the vibrant Silicon Valley and beyond. We also
provide our students with a solid foundation to pursue graduate work in Physics, Astronomy,
Engineering, or other areas of Physical Sciences. Our small class sizes allow us to
give students individual attention and to provide hands-on experience. Because SJSU
is committed to serving the Silicon Valley community, the Department of Physics and
Astronomy can be your launch pad to an exciting career in high tech!
