Plan of Study
You will attend Westminster for approximately three years and then transfer to one of our partner universities for an additional two years of engineering study under our dual degree program. In order to transfer, you must maintain a minimum 3.2 GPA, meet the specific requirements of our partner universities, and earn the recommendation of your program advisor.
Physics for Scientists and Engineers
This one-year, calculus-based sequence introduces students to the world of physics. By using a workshop method, students learn how to use computer tools to analyze data and do mathematical modeling, while studying topics including Kinematics, Newton’s Laws of Motion, electricity, and magnetism.
Through this course, you will study the mathematical structures that deal with countable sets. You will investigate topics including logic, permutations, combinations, finite probability, sequences, and more.
