Note: Prior to academic year 2023-24 and the introduction of the Engineering Science program, all students pursuing engineering majored or minored in physics. A degree in Engineering Science is now available, and we expect that many students who pursue graduate work in engineering will come through that program as well.
These following 15 students are the Luther physics graduates (representing 39% of the total of 38 physics majors graduating in this time period) who sought graduate program admission during these years. Among the other graduates, six more sought graduate degrees in physics or other fields, and the other 17 are employed in various positions from teaching, to data science, to software engineering.
Please visit this page to find out where some of our recent alumni are now pursuing careers in engineering.
Many students who arrive at Luther and are interested in engineering go on instead to pursue graduate work in physics, astronomy, or related STEM fields. Please visit this page to read about some of their graduate school destinations after Luther.
