The Engineering Physics Major prepares students for careers in science, engineering, and technology industries. Students will benefit from innovative teaching methods with an emphasis on active classroom experiences. Learn in cutting-edge environments, guided by the best ideas from leading physics education researchers. Enjoy a learn-by-doing approach that begins with a first year introductory physics class taught without formal lectures and continues in upper-division courses where students work on sophisticated, open-ended projects culminating in the senior-year design capstone project.

Program Details

Program Learning Outcomes

  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
