Sequential Degree Alternative

An alternative chosen by many students interested in electrical, mechanical, or nuclear engineering or materials science is to complete a physics degree at Elmhurst and then go to graduate school for one or two additional years to obtain a master's degree in an engineering specialty. There are two advantages to this approach: first, you’ll receive two sequential degrees rather than two degrees at the same level; second, if you have strong qualifications, you can probably obtain an assistantship or fellowship to cover tuition and expenses during the period of graduate study.

For more information, contact Dr. Brian Wilhite, department chair.
