This concentration can result in students earning either the Renewable Energy Certificate from Madison College, in addition to a BS degree in Physics from Edgewood College. Students can begin taking renewable energy courses at Madison College at any time, as many are short or online courses. Students considering graduate school in physics or engineering should consult with their advisor for recommended additional coursework.
A student must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 in all courses taken to fulfill the major and concentration requirements. Any course in which a student receives a grade below “CD” will not be accepted toward the major. Transfer students must take a minimum of 12 physics credits at Edgewood College. All transfer courses must be approved by the department. Elective courses may be taken through the UW-Madison Collaborative Program or through Madison College Partnerships in Electrical Engineering, Renewable Energy, or Civil Engineering. See your advisor for details.
