|Description:||The undergraduate Engineering Physics program provides an opportunity for students with an aptitude for the physical sciences and mathematics to fully develop their capabilities and apply them to engineering problems. The total time from admission to Engineering to graduation with a B.Eng. in Engineering Physics is four years, and five years for the combined B.Eng. Management or the B.Eng. Society degrees. Graduates of the program provide valuable feedback, which helps to maintain the relevance of the undergraduate curriculum to current engineering applications.
One of the strengths of the Engineering Physics program is that it is very broadly based and prepares its graduates to pursue a wide range of career paths. All students in the program obtain a background in electrical science, engineering materials, classical and quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, electronics, data acquisition and handling, mathematical physics and numerical analysis. In the final two years of the program, students have the opportunity to focus on one of the three specialized areas of study. Students who are entering Level 2 of a B.Eng. program or Level 3 of a B.Eng. Management or B.Eng. Society program are asked to choose one of three specialized streams or the broader interdisciplinary stream, which combines selected components from the other three. These streams are: Nuclear Engineering and Energy Systems, Nano- and Micro-Devices, Photonics Engineering, and Interdisciplinary.
