Department of ​Engineering-Physics-Systems

Welcome to the the Department of Engineering-Physics-Systems (EPS) at Providence College. Our department offers undergraduate programs that prepare students for careers in applied science and engineering.

These programs include:

  • A combined engineering program, which has affiliations with Columbia University in New York City and Washington University in St. Louis;
  • An applied physics program, which is a cross-disciplinary program in applied physics that combines the traditional physics program with courses in systems science;
  • physics/secondary education track for students interested in teaching physics at the high school level; and
  • Minors in applied physics and systems science.

We hope that this site will show you the amazing research opportunities that our students take advantage of and will answer any questions that you may have about our programs.
