Earn a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics for Industry and Engineering at UWRF and a Masters or Ph.D. in Engineering from an engineering graduate school. Note that almost all graduate work in science and engineering is financially supported through tuition remission and a salary or stipend for being a teaching assistant or research assistant. Some students receive fellowships as well. So unlike many fields in which students must pay for graduate school with loans, students pursuing Masters and PhD work in science and engineering fields do not take on debt to do so. Here are the sample four year plans for APIE and the four certificates that APIE majors can pursue in Optics and Electronics, Mechanics, Entrepreneurship, and/or Biology.
