At Tulane University our students have a unique opportunity to combine understanding of science and engineering both in our courses and degrees. Alongside our longstanding Physics Program (science) established in 1895, we added an undergraduate Engineering Physics Program (engineering) in 2006. Students can be more marketable with the dual experience available in both of these degree programs.
The number of undergraduate students in our traditional Physics Program has doubled since hurricane Katrina (2005). Our new Engineering Physics Program has rapidly grown to about the same number of students as in Physics with a total of approximately 20 Physics majors plus 20 Engineering Physics majors in our 2011 freshman class. Both teaching and research in our department are experiencing exciting growth. We intend to add a new PhD Program in Materials Engineering soon to our Physics PhD Program, established half a century ago. Our goal is to find new and effective ways to expand and integrate cutting edge science and technology to meet the growing needs of widening interdisciplinary global challenges, and to provide our graduates with the advantage of this enhanced experience.
Whether you are a student contemplating an undergraduate program, a prospective graduate student, a scientist interested in postdoctoral or faculty positions, or simply browsing our website, we invite you to you visit us here in New Orleans and perhaps join our unique Physics and Engineering Physics (PEP) team here at Tulane University.
