The EP curriculum encourages students to extend themselves and develop broad skills in the physical sciences.
Our curriculum fosters mastery in areas of basic physics and related skills that have in the past proven universally important.
We believe that excellence in physics—particularly developing the capability to do physics rather than just know physics—is vitally important for a scientist or engineer, particularly to push the frontier of an engineering area. Therefore the Engineering Physics program encourages the development of experimental skills to complement formal coursework, offering five experimental courses in the areas of computers, lasers, optics and electronics. Combined with properly chosen specialty courses, this program enables students to choose future directions wisely.
If you want a broad technological and scientific base from which to operate, regardless of your specific interests, Engineering Physics can open more career options than if you had chosen a narrowly defined field to study as an undergraduate.
