The Department of Physics and Engineering offers three distinct paths for students:


Physics, the most fundamental science, is an integral part of many other disciplines, including astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and engineering. Students can enroll in the major or minor in Physics, a rigorous lab-based curriculum with world-class facilities on campus at Suffolk and study abroad opportunities.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering plays a role in nearly all other disciplines. You'll learn about power generation and delivery, communications, robotics, computer applications, control, and circuit/system design. Whether you are interested in hardware, software, or firmware, this major will provide you with theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in the engineering field.

Radiation Science

Explore a multi-faceted field that integrates physics, radiation, biology, chemistry, and mathematics. Programs in radiation science, radiation therapy, and medical dosimetry prepare students for meaningful careers in the field of cancer treatment.
