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.
Four projects are now fully underway, but two are still taking a few members.
- Pilot Waves
- Cyclotron Motion Simulation
- PID with Microcontroller (applications still open)
- Solar Batteries & Charging Analysis (applications still open)
Our first public workshop is coming up!
The first round of Skill Guides will be uploaded in the next week (or so).
This round of Upsilon Lab Skill Guides includes:
- Reading a Research Paper
- Introduction to Python for Mac (Windows and others coming soon)
More guides you can expect in the near future, hopefully this Winter Quarter:
- Introduction to LabVIEW
- Introduction to LaTeX
- PCB Design with EAGLE
- and more!
Many new projects still TBA!
Several new projects, and corresponding teams to join, will be announced on the site in the near future, so check back regularly.
Even if you don’t see a current project that catches your eye, we’re still actively looking for new members and managers, so apply today, and we’ll notify you of any projects similar to the ones you marked on your application.
