Do you want to be an inventor? A research engineer? A technology entrepreneur? Engineering Physics (EngPhys) encourages creativity, challenges intellects and celebrates big-picture thinking in a collegial, smaller class setting while offering science depth and engineering breadth to develop technology leaders and pioneers.

EngPhys students build a solid foundation in applied physics and a blend of electrical and mechanical engineering, while gaining extensive engineering design experience. EngPhys offers unmatched breadth and freedom for intellectual development—six electives allow you to shape the program toward your field of interest while encouraging the rigorous pursuit of innovation.

Through team-based design courses and state-of-the-art fabrication equipment, you will learn to build complex electromechanical systems, bringing your innovative science ideas to life as real products, patents and entrepreneurial opportunities.
