Engineering Physics



The Undergraduate program in Engineering Physics emphasizes the acquisition of knowledge directly related to physics and includes courses, practical work and lab sessions that cover all aspects of physics, including thermodynamics, optics, modern physics and quantum mechanics. An Engineering Physics student will also learn more advanced topics such as biophysics and solid-state physics.  The Engineering Physics program also includes a 4-month mandatory internship.

An Undergraduate student can choose from one of the following four concentrations:

  • The Classical path allows the student to learn more about a variety of domains related to applied physics, depending on his interests.
  • The Biomedical concentration concentrates on the principles of physics applied to biological systems and on the conception and fabrication of products or processes for medical diagnosis and treatment of diseases.  
  • The Photonics concentration covers basic techniques and knowledge in this discipline useful for its applications in various domains, including optical communications, quantum computing, biophotonics...
  • The Micro and Nano Technology concentration aims at developing skills in the domain of control and fabrication of devices and materials at the nanometric and micrometric scale.
