Students interested in engineering, applied physics, or working in industrial laboratories have several options. They can major in physics, orienting their coursework toward working in industry; they can do graduate work in physics or engineering and then work in industry in applied physics or in an engineering position; or they can do a two-year pre-engineering program at Hamline. Because the courses for the two-year pre-engineering program are essentially the same as those for a physics major, students can easily shift from one program to the other should their directions change.Another option available to students interested in engineering is the three-year pre-engineering program. Hamline, together with Washington University (St. Louis) and the University of Minnesota, sponsors a 3-2 program in engineering, wherein a student attends Hamline for the first three years, followed by two years in the particular engineering department at Washington University or at the University of Minnesota. Students enrolled in these programs must still complete the basic Hamline Plan requirements. Upon completion of this program, the student receives a BA from Hamline and an engineering degree from Washington University or the University of Minnesota. Hamline and the University of Minnesota also offer a 4-2 program in which the student graduates from Hamline and continues at the University of Minnesota for a master’s degree in one of the engineering fields.
Students wishing to pursue this option should follow this course of study:
Hamline forensic science students and a faculty member were featured in a story on KARE 11 News that illustrated the physical evidence a person leaves behind in a given day and how forensic scientists might collect and examine those clues.
