Engineering Physics at Augustana College

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 pre-engineering program or working in engineering after graduation from Augustana.

Major in Engineering Physics.  29 credits, including the following PHYS courses:  170, 201-203, 220, 301, 350-352, 370;  6 credits of either PHYS 320 and 322, or PHYS 308 and 311;  3 credits in one of the following electives; PHYS 311, 313, 316, 320, 321, 322, 340, 360, 390, 401.  6 credits in CHEM 121 and 122; 9 credits in MATH 219, 220, 221.

The above sequence involves a selection of one of two tracks: mechanics or electricity.  A student interested in mechanical or civil engineering would take PHYS 320 Mechanics I and 322 Engineering Statics, while students interested in electrical or computer engineering would take PHYS 308 Electronic Circuits and 311 Electricity and Magnetism.
