Engineering Physics?

  1. Apr 12, 2013 #1
    Hello all,

    I am currently in the Physics BS program at my school and I really want to also get the Certificate they offer in Engineering Physics. My advisor, though, is quite scatterbrained and every time I see him he needs to be reminded of what I'm doing, etc., etc...

    Consequently, I am looking for some advice on what classes to take to get this certificate as it is extremely flexible. I need to take 5 engineering courses and a capstone design course on top of my major requirements, so I was wondering what people believe will compliment the major best, give me a good introduction into the field, and give me some valuable skills and knowledge.

    For the Physics BS, I will be taking:

    Calc I, II, III
    Differential Equations
    Intro Physics 1 & 2
    Modern Physics
    Mathematical Methods for Physics
    Optics w/ Lab
    Electronics w/ Lab
    Theoretical Mechanics 1
    Electricity & Magnetism 1
    Quantum Mechanics 1
    And the second course in one of the previous 3

    So, with that in mind, what would everyone recommend in terms of getting a good grounding in Engineering / Engineering Physics with a brief 5-7 courses?
