Programs in Engineering


The Department of Physics supports the dual degree engineering programs in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering that are detailed in the following pages. For more information regarding Dual Degree Engineering Programs, students should consult with the Director of Dual Degree Engineering Programs and see the information about Dual Degree Engineering Programs in this catalog.

All programs require taking the CHEM 1110 -CHEM 1120  sequence, however the CHEM 1010 -CHEM 1020  sequence may be substituted if a scheduling conflict does not permit taking the recommended CHEM 1110 -CHEM 1120  sequence. Note that a student’s chemistry courses must all be in one of the sequences.

Students have the option of pursuing a B.S. degree in physics rather than a B.A. degree. A student who wishes to receive the B.S. degree must satisfy the requirements for the B.A. degree and in addition take three PHYS courses from the following list: PHYS 3010 , PHYS 3011 , PHYS 3020 , PHYS 3030 , PHYS 3040 , PHYS 4050 . None of the three courses can be a course that is already required for the B.A. degree or that has already been counted as a physics elective.
