Applied Mathematics, Engineering, and Physics (AMEP) is an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science degree program focusing on math, physics, and an area of Engineering. AMEP is a substantial degree, yet it can be completed in four years with early planning.
AMEP is for students with broad interests in mathematics, physics and engineering. AMEP seeks to achieve an optimum balance of breadth and depth.
AMEP graduates typically go on to industrial jobs or Master’s or PhD programs in Engineering, Physics, Medical Physics, Mathematics, or Computer Science.
AMEP offers a unique combination of mathematical physics and engineering education that not only provides excellent preparation for graduate school in applied science or engineering, but is also of great value to industry. AMEP students interact with Mathematicians, Physicists and Engineers throughout their education and this leaves them well equipped to contribute to interdisciplinary teams and to adapt to complex and changing situations and technologies.
AMEP is a program recommended for those students who have strong ability and interest in mathematics and the physical sciences. An incoming AMEP student is recommended to have had sufficient preparation from high school to begin with calculus and physics in their freshman year.
The AMEP program has specific graduation requirements which are different from those for a typical L&S BS or BA degree. AMEP requires a minimum of 21 engineering credits forming a coherent concentration of courses into an engineering field. See Courses for a description of the AMEP core curriculum and graduation requirements, course tips and suggestions, and links to course descriptions.
