Engineering Physics (B.S.)

Students studying Engineering Physics usually fall into two categories, those wishing to pursue a graduate degree in physics (or possibly engineering), or those with a passion for physics and research and are seeking a career in a high-tech industry or national lab. The program gives students a strong theoretical foundation in physics and mathematics principals, while also building strong skills in hardware, software, and design.
