The TCNJ physics department regularly hosts visiting international students and scholars. For 2018-2019, we welcome Ms. Yutong Li from Shandong University in China, and Mr. Jan Krueger from University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany. Ms. Li is working with Prof. Paul Wiita on astrophysics research. Mr. Krueger is working with Prof. David McGee on photonics research.
The TCNJ physics department was recently recognized by the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTec) as a member of the 5+ Club, for having graduated 9 physics teachers in 2016. Only Rutgers University graduated more (10) nationally. PhysTec is co-sponsored by the American Institute of Physics, The American Physical Society, and the National Science Foundation.
