Research and Facilities
Tarleton has the largest telescope at any undergraduate only physics program. The telescope is not only larger telescope in the Texas A&M System, but larger than those used by Texas Tech, U of H, UTA, and other PhD astronomy programs. Present research is center on studying the light curves and life cycles of binary stars.
- Fluids/Environmental Engineering Laboratory
Tarleton houses one of the few hydrology/environmental engineering research labs in the country and is comparable with facilities supporting PhD programs at major research institutions.
- Grid Computing Cluster
A PC based grid computing system provides computing power comparable to a super computer for analysis of complex research problems.
- Electromagnetic Research Facility
Research in electromagnetic waves including microwave communication, target detection, stealth technology, optical communications, image processing, etc. Facility includes a state-of-the-art anechoic research chamber.
