Welcome to the web home of the Engineering Physics program at the University of Kansas. If you love science, math and engineering, this is the place for you. In our interdisciplinary program students prepare themselves for life in the 21st century. Students work with faculty from both the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the School of Engineering. They can have cutting edge research experiences that run the gamut from A (Automobiles) to Z (Z bosons).

If you have any questions about the program that aren't answered on the web site, please contact us at ephx@ku.edu.
