Welcome to the Department of Engineering Physics.
Our department teaches the application of modern physics needed to solve the most challenging problems in the world today such as replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy, developing nano-scale devices, or applying light to cure diseases.
We offer four areas of study (called "streams") which include:
• Nano- and Micro-device Engineering;
• Nuclear Engineering and Energy Systems;
• Photonics Engineering; and
• Interdisciplinary Engineering
(which combines aspects of the previous three streams).
In addition to our regular 4-year degree program, we also offer the 5-year programs in Engineering Physics and Management, Engineering Physics and Society, and Engineering Physics and International Studies. Our graduates find employment as electronic, biotechnology, nuclear, or manufacturing engineers, for example. A detailed description of job opportunities is available in our department document, "Careers in Engineering Physics".
Undergraduate studies will be one of your most challenging and rewarding experiences. If you have any questions related to the undergraduate programs, please do not hesitate to contact me.
