# Sample AB/BE Programs for Dartmouth Physics Majors

Students interested in physics and engineering can major in engineering physics, or major in physics with an engineering sciences minor, then continue to the Bachelor of Engineering (BE) program.

The sample programs below are examples of what can be done. Interested students should plan their programs in consultation with a professor in each department to ensure that all degree requirements are met.
