A B.S. degree in Engineering Physics is offered which fulfills the growing need for programs compatible with a career in engineering. The engineering physics curriculum retains the benefits of a strong liberal arts program, while it prepares students to pursue applied physics or graduate engineering training or to move directly into engineering physics careers. Most physicists in the industrial environment hold engineering positions, and the curriculum is designed to emphasize the natural association of physics and engineering.
