The major in engineering physics combines coursework in fundamental physics with specialized courses in applied physics and engineering. The major is intended for students interested in participating in our 3-2 engineering program or working in engineering or industry after graduation from Augustana.
MAJOR IN ENGINEERING PHYSICS 42-44 credits, including 211, 212, 213, 366, 368 (or 367 and 421), ENGR-180 or ENGR-190, ENGR-375, and 6 credits of ENGR-310 and PHYS-360, or 8 credits of PHYS-339 and PHYS-377, or 8 credits of CHEM-321 and CHEM-322, 4 credits of chemistry at 131 level or above, and 10 credits of MATH-160, MATH-220, and MATH-260.
The above sequence involves a selection of one of three engineering tracks: chemical, mechanical, or electrical. A student interested in mechanical or civil engineering would take ENGR-310 and PHYS-360, students interested in electrical or computer engineering would take PHYS-339 and PHYS-377, while students interested in chemical engineering would take CHEM-321 and CHEM-322. Students may NOT major in both Physics and Engineering-Physics.
Grade Point Average Notation: All courses listed in the catalog as required courses for any major and/or minor, including those courses outside of the department or with a different subject coding, are considered part of the major and will count in the grade point average. Some departments may have additional grade requirements for the courses offered within their department. Recommended supporting courses that are optional and not required may also count in the major depending on the program. For more information see your department chair or the degree requirements for Bachelor of Arts and information on Majors/Minors.
