Note: Students earning this degree will follow the 31-hour core curriculum for Engineering/Physics BS students.
The Engineering Physics degree prepares students with a strong interest in both engineering and physics for a career in industry, either directly following their undergraduate studies or after additional graduate studies in engineering or physics. The degree encompasses both a rigorous course of study in physics as well as a strong foundation in an engineering core.
Students will be ideally prepared for a career either as a professional engineer in industry or a successful student and researcher pursuing an advanced degree, e.g., a Master’s or PhD degree in Engineering or Physics. Many employers, especially in industrial research and development, value the combination of the unique problem-solving approach of physics and knowledge in engineering core classes.
Students in the 3:2 Pre-Engineering program have the opportunity to switch after their second year of studies into the four year BS Engineering Physics program rather than continuing after their third year at UST for two additional years at a collaborating university.
