• Pre-Engineering

    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;

    • do graduate work in physics or engineering and then work in industry in applied physics or in an engineering position; or

    • 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.

    Contact the Physics Department for more information.
