The Precision IceCube Next Generation Upgrade (PINGU) is a proposed IceCube in-fill array designed to measure the neutrino mass hierarchy using atmospheric neutrino interactions in the ice at the South Pole. PINGU will have a neutrino energy threshold of a few GeV with a multi-megaton effective volume. We present PINGU's expected sensitivity to the hierarchy with an optimized geometry and with consideration of a full complement of systematic uncertainties. We also briefly present PINGU sensitivity to other topics in neutrino oscillations, as well as to low-mass dark matter.
