Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics (BSEP)
Advisor: Tom Vandervelde, Electrical and Computer Engineering
The School of Engineering, in cooperation with the Department of Physics, offers a combined program of study leading to a Bachelor of Science in engineering physics. The program combines an emphasis on the mastery of the fundamental principles of physics and basic mathematical techniques with the disciplined practicality of professional engineering. Students enrolled in this program are members of the School of Engineering but will have academic advisers in both engineering and physics. While a student may enter the engineering physics program at any time, it is expected that he or she will have taken the introductory courses in basic science and mathematics common to all Tufts engineering programs. Early participation in faculty research projects is encouraged. At present, areas of particular interest include astrophysics, biophysics, elementary particle physics, magnetism and superconductivity, polymer physics, surface physics, and optics.
The BSEP degree is currently administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. BSEP Degree Checklist
Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science (BSES)
Advisor: Daniele Lantagne, Civil and Environmental Engineering
In general, the School of Engineering requires undergraduate students to specialize within the framework of the various departments. A student may, however, seek a more diversified program in engineering and science leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in engineering science. This degree program allows the student who is interested in the application of science and mathematics to engineering to develop an individualized program of study. The engineering science curriculum is designed to meet the need for basic studies in engineering with a broad foundation in science. It includes the introductory courses and selected foundation courses. It differs from the professional degree programs in that the department concentration courses can be varied to provide flexible programs in science and engineering. Of the credits beyond the introductory, the foundation, the free electives, the humanities and/or arts, and social sciences requirements, approximately one-third must be taken in a single field of physical or biological science, one-third in engineering subjects, with the remaining one-third available to meet the particular professional objective of the student. Students who wish to pursue a program of this nature should consult with an individual faculty member in the School of Engineering and submit a written curriculum program for approval to the academic dean before the end of the sophomore year.

Bachelor of Science (No Major)
Advisor: Jennifer Stephan, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Advising
The program leading to the bachelor of science degree consists of thirty-six credits. A minimum of eighteen of these credits must be in engineering and in those departments that provide foundation courses in the accredited programs. This group must include Mathematics 11 and 12 and eight credits in engineering or engineering science. A minimum of six of the remaining credits must be in the humanities and/or arts, and social sciences. Students in the program choose their adviser from the faculty of the School of Engineering. Each student, through his or her adviser, must submit for approval a proposed program of study to a committee consisting of the deans and the chairs of the various engineering departments. No major is associated with this degree.
