Master of Engineering - Engineering Physics

Master of Engineering - Engineering Physics

The Master of Engineering - Engineering Physics degree program requires a total of 30 credits and has three options. Students enrolled in a particular option develop a course of study in conjunction with their academic advisor. In contrast to the Master of Science in physics, the Master of Engineering option is intended to provide the student with deeper insight into the specific area of their choice – which may even be interdisciplinary.

Master of Engineering Physics – Concentration Nanotechnology
The Engineering Physics option in Nanotechnology seeks to extend and broaden training in a largely interdisciplinary learning environment with a focus on fundamentals and applications of Nanotechnology.

The Engineering Physics option in Applied Optics seeks to extend and broaden training in those areas pertinent to the field of applied optics or optical engineering.

Core Courses in Engineering Physics (Applied Optics)

PEP 509 Intermediate Waves and Optics

The Engineering Physics option in Nanotechnology seeks to extend and broaden training in a largely interdisciplinary learning environment with a focus on fundamentals and applications of Nanotechnology.

Core Courses in Engineering Physics (Nanotechnology)

PEP 538 Introduction to Mechanics
PEP 542 Electromagnetism
PEP 553 Quantum Mechanics and Engineering Applications

In addition to the core courses, the student has to complete three additional courses out of the PEP or NANO program (elective courses) selected in consultation with the advisor. As an option, candidates may choose to execute a Master thesis in the realm of nanotechnology in consultation with an academic advisor for up to six credits to be counted towards the degree in replacement of elected courses.
