Program Details

Engineering Physics is a fascinating program for students who want to combine the strengths of physics and engineering. You will gain a broad and strong foundation in material science, applied physics, electronics and nanotechnology, and learn to apply it in the development of new technologies which include nanotechnology, semiconductor devices, optics and photonics, telecommunications and quantum technologies.

The Bachelor of Engineering’s Engineering Physics program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, allowing graduates to meet the educational requirements for registering as a professional engineer.

State-of-the-Art Facilities

Carleton is one of the few universities in the country with its own in-house IC fabrication facilities.

Work Experience

A Co-op option is available. Co-op is the opportunity to get a head start on a career. Co-op work terms allow for the development of key employability skills, exploration of career options and graduation with tangible, workplace experience.
