The Engineering Physics program (54-55 hours) is a program designed to provide students with a solid foundation and technical skills desirable for success in applied physics and engineering fields. It is an interdisciplinary program with several tracks for students. The tracks are:
The Computational Physics track leans heavily on math and computer skills for students in the fast growing field of computational physics ranging from gaming to simulations in areas such as material science, biomedical engineering, and modeling.
The Material Science and Applied Physics track for those students who wish to work in industry or pursue advanced study in an applied physics field or the interdisciplinary field of material science.
The Pre-Engineering track is for those students who may wish to pursue engineering related work in graduate school.
All tracks involve multiple courses from other areas designed to give our students a solid foundation for them to pursue their goals.
Students with Physics as a first major should take CSM 4015 Capstone as part of their BELL Core requirements unless a different BELL Core Senior Capstone is required for a second major.
Technical requirements are support courses that may be needed as prerequisites for some courses within the major or to ensure thorough understanding of the content of the major. They may count towards the BELL Core Requirements , the requirements for a second major of minor, or they may count as free electives.
