The EP Program is a special program that was developed jointly by the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics and the Engineering Department. Students in the EP Program follow a special core curriculum that combines aspects of the engineering and science core curricula.
This combination of courses provides the students with the basic concepts of engineering together with a basic understanding of physical phenomena at a microscopic level and lets them explore the relation of the physics concepts to practical problems of engineering in one of four high-tech areas of concentration:
These concentrations represent high-tech areas of significant current local and global technological and economic interest. The PEP department has both research strength and educational expertise in these areas where there is significant growth potential. For all concentrations, required and/or elective courses offered by other departments (EE, EN, MT) can be used to complement departmental course offerings, which provide the students in the program with the necessary diversity, breadth, and depth of educational offerings and research opportunities.
