Pre-Engineering Physics

In the Pre-Engineering Physics program, students take physics courses at Loyola during their first three years and then pursue an engineering degree at another university for an additional two years. With the successful completion of the engineering degree, the student also earns a physics degree from Loyola. We currently have partnerships with engineering departments at the University of New Orleans and Tulane University's School of Engineering. Interested students must consult the Associate Dean.
