DescriptionEngineering physics intersects a variety of engineering disciplines together with mathematics, applied physics, and the natural sciences. Engineering physicists are accomplishing breakthroughs and innovations in a variety of fields by applying cutting-edge physics research to new and existing technologies. The University of Alberta's Engineering Physics program starts with a strong foundation in mathematics and physics and builds upon these principles through active research projects in areas such as fusion energy, microelectronics, robotics systems, and fibre-optic communications. The program offers a wide range of opportunities upon graduation, preparing you to meet unique engineering challenges.

This degree can be taken as a Co-op (co-operative education) program. Through the Co-op program, you will have the opportunity to complete paid, supervised work terms throughout your degree. Co-op programs are great way to challenge yourself, gain relevant work experience, and make connections to industry before you graduate! Most co-op programs include five work terms lasting four months each, in addition to the usual eight terms (four years) of full-time study. Therefore, co-op programs require five years to complete.
