Challenge yourself by earning two degrees in five years.

Set yourself apart in the job market with our Bachelor of Science in Physics Cooperative Engineering track. You’ll spend three years at Edinboro and two years at a cooperative engineering school. The program is both challenging and rewarding. When you are done, you’ll hold both a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Edinboro and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the cooperative school.

At Edinboro, small classes led by faculty experts encourage problem solving and independent thinking. And a rigorous curriculum with extensive internship and research opportunities help you develop a wide-set of transferable skills in analytical thinking, programming and mathematics.

The colleges of Engineering and Earth and Mineral Sciences at Pennsylvania State University; Penn State Erie, The Behrend College; Case Western Reserve University; and the School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh all have cooperative agreements with Edinboro for this program.

Expert Faculty

Accomplished faculty instruct, guide, and inspire Edinboro students to achieve and lead. EU faculty are recognized for their commitment to student success and creating a personal and engaging academic environment.

Experiential Learning
