Be insatiably curious.
“In journeying outward, we explore inward, and by looking inward, we discover the world around us. Each scale is fundamentally connected, and we learn how systems work by exploring those connections.”

OUR COMMITMENT TO EXPLORATION
Driven by wonder and collaboration, we do incredible research that leads to big discovery and impact. We believe in the power of global exploration that inspires new perspectives and thinking. And as a top-20 public research institution, we encourage undergraduate and graduate students to work on life-changing research with faculty. By the time they graduate, they've helped lead missions to different destinations in the solar system or assisted in the development of the quantum internet.

Confused by quantum computing? Students are developing a puzzle game to help
UArizona students have developed an online game modeled after the popular "tangram" puzzle game. The game is meant to help teach quantum computation concepts to people ranging from young students to researchers.
Optical switching at record speeds opens door for ultrafast, light-based electronics and computers
Imagine a home computer operating 1 million times faster than the most expensive hardware on the market. Now, imagine that being the industry standard. UArizona physicists hope to pave the way for that reality.
