The engineering physics concentration is part of the physics major.
The Engineering Physics Concentration is designed for students who are interested in the advancement of technology and the physics that undergirds such technological progress. Students in this concentration are well-prepared to pursue a career in the high-tech industry or continue their studies in an applied physics or engineering graduate school.
This four-year concentration differs from our 3-2 engineering program in that students stay at Gordon for their undergraduate career and receive a physics degree (B.S.) upon completion. This concentration prepares students to make contributions in fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, materials science, renewable energy, medical physics, and many others.
In addition to the required courses listed near the bottom of this page that all physics majors must take, the following courses are required for the engineering physics concentration:
|PHY125||Introduction to Engineering|
|PHY328||Strength of Materials||OR||PHY261 & 262||Introdution to Material Science & Lab|
|CHE111 & CHE112||Principles of Chemistry I, II||OR||CPS121 & 122||Introduction to Programming & Object-Oriented Software Development|
The following are optional courses, recommended depending on the engineering field of interest:
|PHY341 & PHY342||Electric and Magnetic Fields II & Lab|
|PHY121 & Lab||Introductory Physics I|
|PHY122 & Lab||Introductory Physics II|
|PHY221/MAT221||Mathematical Methods in Physics I|
|PHY284||Modern Physics Lab|
|PHY338 & PHY339||Electric & Magnetic Fields I & Lab|
|PHY391 & PHY392||Junior Seminar I, II|
|PHY491 & PHY492||Senior Seminar I, II|
|MAT141 & MAT142||Calculus I, II|
