Upsilon Lab is a department-sponsored organization at UCLA in the Physics & Astronomy Department. We are undergraduates in the department whose mission is to provide other physics, biophysics, and astrophysics majors the opportunity to learn valuable skills to succeed in their future endeavors, whether in research, engineering, or other fields.
