An undergraduate program in physics provides excellent preparation for graduate study in many areas of the physical sciences and engineering, such as mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aeronautical engineering, aerospace engineering, optical engineering and electrical engineering.

Many applied physics graduates pursue professional careers in the industry immediately after graduation from PLU, but the program also provides excellent preparation for graduate study in nearly all fields of engineering.

Other alumni have earned or are pursuing graduate degrees in physics, material science, engineering, astronomy, and medicine at institutions around the country, including the University of Washington, Yale University, the University of Colorado, the University of Rochester, Oregon State University, Ohio State University and the University of Wisconsin.
