Discover the fundamental laws of nature and then apply this knowledge to design breakthrough technologies that will transform our society. While physics probes big questions ranging from the origin of the universe to the workings of the quantum world, electrical engineering underlies the technologies that are ubiquitous to our modern world, from power generation to the computer chip.

By teaching you the foundations of how nature works, and then how to innovate with this knowledge, this integrated program will uniquely equip you to tackle societal and technological problems facing us and future generations. At the end of five years, you will earn two degrees, one in physics and one in electrical engineering, and will be truly equipped to defy the conventional.
