Bachelor of Science
As the most fundamental of the sciences, physics will amaze you, expand your mind and prepare you for a surprising variety of occupations. The Engineering Physics Track as part of the physics degree is your pathway to the applied, hands on, side of physics and engineering. This highly flexible major can take you in a direction that fits your interests.
The Engineering Physics Track is intended for students who plan to work in engineering and applied physics fields; the specific courses in this track will prepare the students to pursue graduate work in engineering.
In KU’s on-campus applied physics, engineering, and prototyping laboratories, you’ll apply theoretical knowledge from your classes to create your own projects, using sophisticated technology to study engineering. You’ll work one-on-one with KU Physics and Engineering faculty, not teaching assistants, on original research projects and student theses.
Your hands-on guided learning can prepare you for careers as varied as R&D in industry and government, data analytics, national security, computer programming, and many other technology careers. Kutztown graduates work in the fields of applied physics and engineering, as well as earning graduate degrees in physics, engineering
