The Department of Physics & Engineering offers three 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 field. More information can be found in the Department Student Handbook .


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.  More information on individual programs can be found here.


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. More information.
