The Department of Physics & Engineering offers multiple degree programs:
B. S. in Physics
This program prepares students to work as quantitative problem solvers in jobs such as researcher, lab technician, or analyst. This program also provides the foundation for graduate work in physics, astronomy, and related fields.
Dual degree 3-2 Physics-Engineering
In this program, students spend 3 years at WCU earning a B.S. in Physics, then spend two years at one of our affiliate institutions to complete a bachelor's degree in an engineering field.
B. S. in Biomedical Engineering
The Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering (BME) at West Chester University is an interdisciplinary program that brings together engineering, biology and medicine. Biomedical engineers can be found working throughout the healthcare system, from diagnosis to treatment and recovery thanks to innovations such as implantable medical devices, stem cell engineering, and the 3-D printed prosthetics.
Combined BS Physics & MS in Quantum Science and Engineering
This program is a truly unique 3-2 dual degree program where students spend three years at WCU and two years at the University of Delaware, after which they will have a B.S. in Physics from WCU and an MS in the growing field of Quantum Science and Engineering (QSE) from the University of Delaware
