Double Major in Physics and Engineering

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee offers a special degree combination in which a student completes all of the requirements for both a Physics Major and an Engineering Major.

Advantages of Double Major:

  • intrinsic interest (physics is a fundamental and fascinating science).
  • broad scientific background (engineering relies on recent scientific discoveries).
  • better job offers, a physics major gives you an extra qualification.
  • more flexible career options (you can pursue both engineering & physics).

There is a list of course equivalences for College of Engineering & Applied Science (CEAS) dual majors. Note that Double Majors graduate through CEAS and must satisfy the CEAS requirements; students should consult with the CEAS advisors.
