Description:The Engineering Physics program allows students to apply the knowledge of fundamental physical principles underlying modern technology and processes. Students will study a strategic combination of math, physics and engineering courses from a chosen specialty area. Courses in quantum mechanics, laser optics and nanotechnology will help prepare students for an engineering career at the leading edge of technology. Students will acquire advanced problem-solving and instrumentation skills, and will be able to apply their superior mathematical, analytical and abstract-thinking ability to modern engineering challenges. Engineering Physics opens up a wide range of career options.

In the Engineering Physics program, core courses provide students with fundamental physical principles and theoretical tools for professional practice as well as a firm foundation in modern experimental techniques. Each year of the program has a course in experimentation and a design course. To relate these abilities to other engineering disciplines, the program provides 4 options: mechanical, electrical, materials, or computing.
