Engineering & Physics Department
Engineers and physicists are best prepared for a rapidly changing and interconnected world when they have a broad liberal arts education that equips them to anticipate, understand and adapt.
Students can choose a four-year engineering degree that provides a broad engineering background that includes both mechanical and electrical emphases. Or our 3-2 program allows students to receive a bachelor's degree from Whitworth and a bachelor's degree in a specific engineering field from one of our partner schools. We have formal agreements with Washington University in St. Louis, Columbia University and Washington State University.
Physics majors are prepared for success in the world's best graduate programs, teaching at the high school level, employment as applied physicists, and for technical careers in business. Biophysiscs majors are well prepared for medical school or graduate programs in medical physics, biomedical engineering and biophysics.
