Physics - Engineering Physics
Illinois State's Engineering Physics major is a five-year program shared with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Bradley University, or other approved engineering university.
Completion of the program leads to two bachelor's degrees. Students begin at Illinois State University and transfer to an engineering college after completing a minimum of 90 credit hours. After transferring 30 approved hours back to Illinois State, students receive the B.S. in physics. They receive a second B.S. in engineering from their engineering university after satisfying their engineering requirements.
Point of Pride
Undergraduate students in the Department of Physics participate in faculty research programs, present at many conferences, and co-author publications in major scientific journals.
Why study Physics - Engineering Physics?
The study of Physics involves the branch of science which is concerned with the laws and properties of matter; physics deals with mechanics, dynamics, light, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, materials, and elementary particles. Physicists work may range from highly complex and theoretical studies, to more practical activities which relate theory to practical needs.
