The Department of Engineering Sciences and the Department of Physics and Astronomy offer a major in Engineering Physics. A key feature of the major is a 5/5 split in courses, unlike a modified major which requires six courses from one field and four from the other.
The prerequisites for this program are: Math 3, 8, 13, 23; Phys 13, 14; Chem 5; and CoSc 5 or Engs 20.
The required or core courses for this program are:
In addition, there are four electives--two from each department. You must select two electives from the following list:
and any two electives* from the Engineering Sciences Department: Engs 21 and higher, excluding Engs 80 and 87, or from the Physics and Astronomy Department which fulfill the straight Physics major.
You must also complete a culminating experience course which can be one of the following:
*Effective with the Class of 2011, students wishing to pursue the BE degree are advised to choose an Engineering Sciences course as their elective, and to choose Engineering Sciences 165 for their culminating experience.
**Prior to enrollment in Engineering Sciences 89 at least six engineering sciences must be completed: Enginneering Sciences 21 plus five additional courses numbered 22-76.
All major programs require an average GPA of 2.0 in all courses counted towards the major, including prerequisites.
