Engineering Physics Undergraduate Program

The engineering physics program is designed for undergraduates with an interest in both science and engineering. The curriculum includes classical and modern physics, mathematics, and their applications to one or more areas of engineering. The student learns the physical science and engineering principles underlying modern technology. 4 design concentrations are offered:

  • Aerospace systems
  • Chemical systems
  • Digital electronic systems
  • Electromechanical control systems

Each option incorporates a significant design component and provides a strong base in one or more engineering disciplines.

For programs in physics, see Physics and Astronomy in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences section of the online catalog.

Educational Objectives

The objective of the program is to produce graduates who have sufficient education in physics and engineering to enter graduate study in either field or to enter positions in research and development. Graduates should have the analytical, problem solving, and communication skills needed to succeed in their chosen careers. They should have sufficient background knowledge to understand and make use of developments in basic science and technology throughout their professional lives.
