The Department of Engineering-Physics-Systems offers a cross-disciplinary program in applied physics that combines the traditional physics program with courses in systems science. The program builds skills in problem solving, planning, and technical management while preparing students for a variety of career and/or graduate study options. It is founded on a humanities and technical core curriculum similar to the combined-plan engineering program. Physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computational science form the technical core. The final four semesters provide the courses that are specific to the concentration. The following is a typical sequence of courses.
