Visit the Physics and Engineering Physics Department
Understand the principles of matter and motion—and then build things.
Master the principles of matter and motion in the engineering physics department at Fordham—and then build something. We designed this program to prepare you for a career or graduate study in mechanical, electrical, or civil engineering in a variety of industries.
You’ll study a broad range of fundamental engineering and physics principles in classes, the teaching lab, research projects, and internships. You can take the classical path to a degree in engineering physics—four years at Fordham—or pursue a five-year double degree in physics and engineering, including two years at Columbia or Case Western.
You’ll graduate ready to take the next step towards a career in architecture, business, engineering, finance, law, medicine, secondary education, and other fields.
You’ll learn more than engineering physics here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, history, literature, languages, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
