About the Applied Physics and Engineering Dual Degree Program
Carroll University, the University of Wisconsin Platteville and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee offer an inter-university program that allows students to earn two degrees: a B.S. in Applied Physics from Carroll University, and a B.S. in Engineering from the UW-Platteville or UW-Milwaukee. There is also an option to earn a B.S. in Applied Physics from Carroll University and an M.S. in Engineering from UW-Milwaukee.
The Carroll University portion of these 3+2 programs consists of an intensive integrated experience in general engineering, physical science, applied mathematics, computation, and liberal studies. Upon completing the 3 year program at Carroll University, students transfer to the UW-Platteville or UW-Milwaukee for 2 years to complete an engineering degree in any one of the following disciplines: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Materials Science. Students receive an Applied Physics degree from Carroll University after the successful completion of their first year at UWP or UWM.
Learning Outcomes for Applied Physics/Engineering
- Prepare students to successfully complete an intensive 2-year engineering curriculum at UW-Platteville or UW-Milwaukee.
- Introduce students to the engineering profession, including engineering problem solving, judgment and practice.
- Begin development of student awareness of the impact of their work on society, locally, nationally and globally.
