Carroll University offers a bachelor’s degree in applied physics through the physics program. This major includes all the courses that are common to the first three years of every engineering curriculum. Applied physics majors are well prepared to go on to earn a bachelor’s degree or higher in engineering at an institution that offers an accredited engineering degree.

Additionally, through the 3+2 engineering program, the applied physics major may be completed by taking three years of courses at Carroll, followed by two more years at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. A well-prepared student may thereby earn both bachelors degrees in a total of five years. They will receive a bachelor of science degree from Carroll in applied physics and a bachelor of science degree from UW-Platteville in engineering (either mechanical or electrical).

Learning Objectives

  1. Prepare students to successfully complete an intensive 2-year engineering curriculum at UW-Platteville.
  2. Introduce students to the engineering profession, including engineering problem solving, judgment and practice.
  3. Begin development of student awareness of the impact of their work on society, locally, nationally and globally.

3+2 ENGINEERING PROGRAM WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MILWAUKEE

  • Through a 3+2 engineering program, the applied physics major may be completed by taking three years of courses at Carroll, followed by two more years at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM).
  • Students can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in applied physics at Carroll and a Bachelor of
    Science degree in engineering or a Master of Science Degree in engineering at UWM.
  • UWM will admit all Carroll students who have completed Carroll's three-year pre-engineering
    program and meet certain criteria.
  • The program offers flexibility by including completion options in civil, electrical, industrial,
    materials and mechanical engineering.

3+2 ENGINEERING PROGRAM WITH UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-PLATTEVILLE

  • Through a 3+2 engineering program, the applied physics major may be completed by taking three years of courses at Carroll, followed by two more years at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
  • Well-prepared students can earn both bachelors degrees in a total of five years. They will receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Carroll in applied physics and a Bachelor of Science degree from UW-Platteville in engineering (either mechanical or electrical).
