Engineering Physics

Degree to be earned: 
B.S.

The Engineering Physics major is designed to attract students with an interest in engineering and applied physics. Although this is not an engineering degree, it is a useful major for those who wish to pursue a future in engineering while enjoying the benefits that a comprehensive liberal arts institution offers. It is also a logical major for students who enroll in the 3-2 Engineering Program (such as outlined in our newly renewed articulation with Case Western Reserve University), although all the requirements for this Engineering Physics major may be completed on this campus in four years.
