Illinois Institute of Technology

Hello, I wanted to ask if it was possible to get a Ph.D. in Physics after completing a Bachelors degree in chemical engineering and a minor in physics from Illinois Tech. Thanks!

It should be possible if you take the right set of courses in physics. Those would include the 2 semester Quantum Mechanics sequence and the two semester Electrodynamics sequence. If you can also take some Classical Mechanics, that would help too.

@xraymancs Thank you. Also, what would you say are the chances of finding an on-campus job for international students?

Sorry, I have been on vacation. There are some jobs available for international students. For example in the dorms or in a research lab.

@xraymancs Alright, thank you again!
