} My research for more than 30 years has been concerned with high power laser development, laser/plasma science relevant to fusion energy and, more recently, high field physics made accessible with terawatt, femtosecond lasers. UBC Engineering Physics Alumni Social Night Date: Apr 3, 2018 - 6:00 PM. } I transferred to Engineering Physics (UBC Applied Science) after Science One. Before wanting to become an engineer, I actually wanted to become a doctor so that I could bring health care into my indigenous community. The next three years provide a structured training in materials knowledge and engineering skills. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe that being in a difficult program such as engineering physics will give me any advantage over other people applying to grad school- and that the program is only negatively affecting my chances. I am currently a consultant to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (University of California). .info__icon { UBC Engineering Physics Alumni Social Night Date: Apr 5, 2017 - 11:00 AM.
