Physics Major With Engineering Emphasis

The Physics with Engineering Emphasis program allows students three options:

  • Transfer after two years
  • Complete a B.S. degree in four years
  • Participate in a 3-2 program with UW-Madison or with UW-Milwaukee to receive two B.S. degrees in five years.

The first two options are addressed in the sample 4 year plan below, and the 3-2 program is addressed in more detail on our 3-2 agreement page.

This Physics Engineering sample four-year plan represents a typical 4-year plan for a physics major who wants to pursue an engineering career. This plan fulfills the requirements for a Bachelor of Science, a physics major and a mathematics minor, as well as the General Education courses required by the University for graduation. You may wish to view a table of course requirements to compare the physics coursework required for each of the four emphases of the physics major.
