Physics: Engineering

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. 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 become engineers; the specific courses in this track will prepare the students to pursue graduate work in engineering.

In KU’s on-campus physics 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 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, secondary school teaching, computer programming, and many other technology careers. Kutztown graduates work in the fields of telecommunications or electronics, as well as earning graduate degrees in physics, engineering and medicine.

The minor in physics can be completed in combination with any other major degree program by taking 20 semester hours of physics courses.
