### Beyond the basics

Students who graduate with this major can pursue careers in:

- Astronomer
- Biophysical researcher
- Biomedical engineer
- Engineering firms
- Wind and solar energy sectors

Students get a lot of one-on-one time and group interactions with expert professors.

Students engage in a high-quality research project that gives them problem solving and analytical skills for careers or graduate programs.

All advanced physics courses are delivered in a flipped format, which is an alternative model to the traditional lecture-style of teaching.
