College of Arts and Science - where great minds meet

Choosing an Undergraduate Program

Graduates of Physics and Engineering Physics take up jobs in a wide range of areas. They work in electronics industries, in hospitals, in research laboratories and in schools and universities. They can be experimental or theoretical physicists specializing in medical physics, biophysics, subatomic physics, material physics, geophysics, astronomy, and cosmology to name just a few. Graduates often find jobs in other areas where training in Physics or Engineering Physics is an asset. 

There are two streams of students in the department: those seeking the Bachelor of Science Degree (B.Sc.) in the College of Arts and Science and those seeking the Bachelor of Engineering degree (B.E.) in the College of Engineering. Both programs apply experimental methods and theoretical analysis, through the use of mathematics and computers, to the solution of problems in the physical world. Good standing in Physics 30, Algebra 30, and Geo-Trig 30 are prerequisite. It is to the advantage of the student to have taken Calculus 30 at the high school level. Detailed information on admission requirements and program descriptions can be found in the University of Saskatchewan Calendar

The three and four year majors programs may be of interest to prospective science teachers as well as to students with other science majors who wish to strengthen their physics background. Both the B.Sc. and the B.E. programs balance the theoretical and practical aspects of physics. The B.Sc. programs develop stronger theoretical skills in contrast to applied skills developed in the B.E. program. Qualified students from each of these streams can pursue graduate studies.
