Applied Physics BS with Engineering Emphasis

This major is designed to give you a broad background in general engineering principles and skills. As opposed to a specialized engineering degree, it will allow you to explore a variety of engineering fields while keeping your options open for the future. After graduation, you would be qualified for engineering-related careers in industry, yet maintain the option to earn an engineering or physics master's degree in as little as two years.
