Offering a broad range of topics, the Engineering Division encourages students to explore and refine their interests. Lower-level courses introduce new students to multiple facets of the engineering landscape, focusing on the diversity and practical application of new innovations. Higher-level courses cover broad research interests and facilitate a deeper understanding of specific areas of study.
Basic physics is an integral part of every engineering curriculum. However, in many areas of engineering the sophistication of the field, coupled with the staggering rate of technological advance, has created a need for engineers with much stronger backgrounds in math and physics—people who can work in an engineering environment and who are capable of applying advanced physics concepts to bring innovations to the marketplace. Engineering Physics offers a thorough curriculum in basic and advanced engineering courses combined with sufficient physics and mathematics to be equivalent to a traditional degree in physics.
