Build a Strong Foundation at Carroll

With Carroll University’s applied physics and engineering dual degree program, you’ll start your studies at Carroll, covering core courses and laboratories in chemistry, physics, computer science and mathematics. In preparation for your transition to engineering school, at Carroll you will also take general engineering courses covering introduction to engineering, statics, dynamics, strength of materials and electric circuits. 

You’ll also be able to build a foundation in other subjects related to the specific engineering major you’re planning to pursue at one of our partner institutions. For example, students interested in biomedical engineering at UW-Milwaukee would take anatomy and physiology courses here at Carroll while students planning to study environmental engineering at UW-Platteville could take additional chemistry or environmental science courses.

Southeastern Wisconsin is the industrial center of the state, and Carroll has developed a strong network of industry relationships in the region. In or close to Waukesha, you have the opportunity to supplement your coursework with internships and local summer jobs that provide practical, real-world experiences and career networking opportunities.
