The Engineering Physics major interweaves classical and modern physics, chemistry, and mathematics with engineering applications. Chief among the attractions of the major is its flexibility; students have the ability to take diverse engineering, math, and science classes based on individual research goals. The solid base in physics and mathematics is augmented with a selection of engineering course options that prepares students to tackle complex problems faced by society.
The Possibilities: EP students will be prepared for grad studies in a wide-range of subjects in physics, math, chemistry, chemical engineering, or engineering programs.
Job Opportunities: National laboratories or in high-tech industries such as lasers, novel materials, biotechnology, computer design, micro-electronics and micro devices, software development, communication technology, and diverse areas that focus on applied science and technology.
