The Engineering Physics program provides students with an extensive background in mathematics and physics, and teaches how to apply this knowledge to engineering problems.
The early years of the program, including a common first year required for all engineering students at the U of A, help students build an understanding and appreciation for the theoretical concepts at the heart of engineering. Engineering physics combines core courses of Electrical Engineering with Physics, and offers specific technical electives in the fourth year of study that focus on the combination of these two fields. Graduates of the Engineering Physics program have gone on to careers in telecommunications, remote sensing, microdevice fabrication, biochips, industrial lasers, fluids engineering, and teaching. The program also offers a solid foundation for students wishing to pursue graduate studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Note: The cooperative program is available for both the Traditional and Nano options of the Engineering Physics program.
