Many alumni of the Department of Physics stay connected to the department as they pursue their professional careers. Their successes inspire current students who aspire to further studies in physics or to use the skills they gained through the study of physics in a wide range of career paths. Our alumni are at NASA, Naval Research Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and faculty and research scientists at various universities and research labs.
The Catholic University of America Alumni Association has chapters around the country that serve to strengthen connections among alumni. Alumni Association chapters and groups also provide career and life experience networking opportunities; promote lifelong learning through educational events; and assist the Office of Admission by recruiting the next generation of Catholic University students.
We invite alumni to support the students in the Department of Physics by assisting with internship and employment opportunities. You also can support our department in the form of a financial contribution through our director of development in the School of Arts and Sciences.
