Engineering - Physics Double Major

Double Major Option

This may be done as a 5-yr degree program leading to a double major in one of the major engineering subjects and applied physics. The total hours depend upon the engineering discipline chosen. The choice available gives students excellent flexibility, and a wide range of career options. The degree obtained labels the student as one who is well grounded in both the fundamental and practical aspects of his technological career choice. The engineering component is ABET accredited. Enrollment for the Double Major Option can be through either CEAT or the College of Arts and Sciences.
