Engineering Physics
I am a prospective student, and i am looking to take engineering physics. I was wondering if there are any eng phys students who have looked at the eng phys program at carleton, and could give me a second opinion about the (dis)advantages of either program.

To me it seems like carleton sound focus on practicality the way mcmaster does, but goes significantly more in depth with modern physics and electronics. The one downfall, it lacks a nuclear stream :(

What do you guys think?

I'm in materials, but maybe I can provide a little info.... I have a lot of friends in eng phys!
And I know a bit about Carleton, its nice but from what I hear its mosly Aerospace.

I know some graduates of Eng Phys from here, and theyre working with really cool stuff - tv broadcasting, nuclear plants....

You learn a lot here at mac! If youre interested what the courses specifically teach you you should check out the course calendar on mcmasters website, see what courses you have to take in eng phys - theres a mini description of each on the site

Best of luck, and hope you have you in Mac Eng!
