Sample Applied Physics and Engineering Track Concentrations

Here are a few examples of how the Applied Physics and Engineering Track requirements can be satisfied.  You can find a complete list of approved engineering courses here.

Note:  CS 10 can't be used to satisfy part of the Applied Physics and Engineering Track requirements, since it's part of the general degree requirements for the physics major.  Double counting CS 10 is not allowed.
