Physics and 3-2 Engineering

Got an insatiable curiosity about how things work (and why), and an appreciation for the complexity of our universe? As a physics major, you will ask deep questions, demand creative solutions, and discover astounding order and beauty. Three concentrations—professional, computational and engineering-physics—allow you to tailor the major to achieve your goals. Or, you can participate in our 3–2 Engineering Program and earn dual bachelor’s degrees in physics and engineering.
