Physics and Engineering Department Day

Elizabethtown College offers four-year Bachelor of science degrees in Physics, ABET accredited Engineering, and ABET accredited Computer Engineering. A concentration in secondary education is also available for students majoring in Physics. An Engineering major offers concentrations in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Applied Physics. Students in the Physics and Engineering Department frequently work on state-of-the-art research projects with faculty and intern with organizations such as the Lutron Electronics, Frito Lay, Phoenix Contract, and High Steel Structures, Inc.

Engineering and Physics Day will allow you to:

  • Meet faculty from the Physics and Engineering Department
  • Compete in small teams to solve challenging problems.

Attention Parents:  Because of the student-oriented collaborative events incorporated within E&P Day, we ask that you allow your son or daughter to independently experience the majority of the programming for the day (starting with the sample E&P class at 9:00 am). Look for segments in the students' schedule located on the right side of the page where you are welcome to join. During parents' downtime, please feel free to explore and/or utilize our campus or visit for sights, attractions, and shopping in the local area. Special programming for parents will include an Admissions and Financial Aid Process presentation at 2:00 pm and "Coffee & Conversation" with E&P faculty at 3:00 pm (locations TBD).
