UDel Dept. of Physics and Astronomy Drupal website

Every single department at the University of Delaware was asked to develop any new site in Drupal and after two years in development and not a single site ready for launch, the Department of Physics & Astronomy decided to source help externally. As the showcase Drupal site for the University of Delaware, we worked very closely with the client team to develop a beautifully designed  and user friendly site.

As someone who often collaborates within local and remote scientific research teams over the Internet, I can only say that working with northStudio.com team has been one of the most pleasant experiences. Their highly skilled developers have assembled a very complex Drupal-based site for our Department of Physics and Astronomy in a record amount of time, often going few steps ahead of our needs. The site has quickly become a role model for the rest of the University. Furthermore, the search engine friendly code and search engine optimization (SEO) provided by northStudio.com has pushed our site toward the top of Google searches for many frontier physics topics we are involved in, thereby highly increasing the visibility of our research enterprise.
