Degree Program Overview

Bachelor's Degree

Zeeman experiment


The first year of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen's University is common to all students. At the beginning of the Second year, students decide which discipline (Civil, Engineering Physics, Chemical , Mechanical, Electrical, Mining, etc.) that they wish to major in for the last three years of their program.

Core courses in the Engineering Physics program provide the student with fundamental physical principles and theoretical tools for professional practice as well as a firm foundation in modern experimental techniques. Each year of the program has a course in experimentation and a design course. To relate these abilities to other engineering disciplines, the program has four options: electrical, materials, mechanical and computing. These options provide a sequence of courses in other engineering departments and thus provide career or graduate studies opportunities in both engineering and applied physics.
