Engineering Physics

Engineering Physics is a bridge between pure and applied science, utilizing fundamental concepts in today's rapidly changing and highly technical engineering environment. The program emphasizes the foundations of modern scientific principles, mathematical rigour, and engineering practice. The program is recommended for students interested in physics, specifically optics, mechanics, electronics, instrumentation, and modelling. Graduates may proceed to a postgraduate degree in Physics and Engineering Physics or in other branches of engineering. There are also double degree programs in Engineering Physics/Computer Science and Engineering Physics/Mathematics which have proven to be very effective for the high technology job market and for graduate work.

All undergraduate students admitted to the College of Engineering are required to complete a common first-year of undeclared studies (known as the first-year common core). Once the first-year common core program has been completed, undergraduate students declare their preferences and compete for admission into an upper-year program. Students who are successful in securing admission into an upper-year program are required to follow the program of study that is prescribed at the time of their admission into the upper-year program.

Recognizing that course and program changes may result in a modification to the original program of study, it is recommended that undergraduate students consult an Academic Advisor within the Engineering Student Centre on a regular basis to confirm their program of study, choose courses (including electives), and monitor their academic progress.
