The major in chemistry/engineering combines courses from engineering, physics, chemistry, and mathematics appropriate for students interested in fields such as chemical process and control and environmental engineering.
he core of the physics major includes courses in classical physics (mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, and electricity and magnetism) as well as modern physics (relativity and quantum physics).
The physics/engineering major includes courses in statics and dynamics, computer graphics, thrmodynamics, electric circuits, materials, and solid and fluid mechanics.
A variety of additional courses not specifically required for these majors allows a student to pursue particular individual interests. The short spring term also offers novel topics of interest, including the recent courses "Physics and Perception of Music" and "Concrete Canoe."
