A degree in engineering physics can be used as a foundation for a higher degree in an extremely wide range of disciplines, including medicine, law, and business. This combination of degrees gives the graduate an advantage in these fields where they can use their EP knowledge to supplement their general knowledge.
Typical jobs for EP graduates include working in private industry, such as in alternative energies, communications, industrial graphics, electronic devices, computer development and software engineering, robotics, and aerospace. These people are responsible for developing new technologies and writing software. They generally work in collaboration with electrical and mechanical engineers. Graduates can also work in the medical field, where their expertise in EP is used to design more effective medical detection devices such as MRI machines. These people usually work in collaboration with radiologists, nuclear engineers, and biomedical engineers. EP graduates can also work in academia, doing research for government agencies, universities, and private industry, while at the same time teaching EP at the post-secondary level.
