Engineering Physics at Stevens

For students who are intrigued by the possibility of combining a mastery of basic physics concepts with exposure to state-of-the-art engineering technology in growing high-tech areas, Stevens offers a unique Bachelor of Science degree in engineering physics (EP).

The EP program is developed jointly by the Department of Physics & Engineering Physics and the School of Engineering & Science. Students in the program follow a special core curriculum that combines aspects of the engineering and science core curricula.

This EP curriculum is tailored to provide students with essential engineering skills together with a foundational understanding of physical phenomena at the microscopic level. Students choose to explore the relationship between physics concepts and practical problems of engineering in one of three high-tech areas of concentration:

  • Applied Optics
  • Atmospheric and Environmental Science
  • Microelectronics and Photonics

These concentrations represent important areas of current global technological and economic interest and coincide with the research strength and educational expertise of the physics and engineering physics department. For all concentrations, required and elective courses offered by other departments may be used to complement departmental course offerings, with the goal of providing students with the necessary diversity, breadth, and depth of educational offerings and research opportunities.
