Physics & Engineering Department
Introduction to the Department
Engineering is concerned with using the tools of science and mathematics to solve real world problems. It is intrinsically interdisciplinary, involving knowledge from the natural sciences, computer science, and mathematics and informed by an understanding of the social and cultural context in which a problem solution must be provided.
We offer majors in engineering, engineering physics, and physics and minors in engineering and physics. Engineering students can earn the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree within four years on our Crete campus or participate in our Dual Degree Engineering Program, which allows earning a bachelors of science degree in physics from Doane and a bachelors of engineering from any ABET accredited college of engineering. For additional information on the dual degree program, see the Pre-engineering Page.

PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS
The links below go to educational projects of national interest developed by faculty and students in the Department of Physics.
This library contains video clips of physics-related phenomena in Quicktime and Flash formats. The clips can be used with video analysis software to obtain data. This collection was chosen to be a quality peer-reviewed resource by MERLOT (www.merlot.org).
This NSF supported curriculum development project seeks to create an algebra-based introductory physics curriculum motivated by exploring how the human body works.
