Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics

ABET Logo

The program leading to the BS degree in Engineering Physics is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org). The goal of the Engineering Physics program is to provide the training in physics and engineering incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints to prepare our students for careers in technical fields in industry, higher education, and for lifelong learning.  Consistent with this goal, the educational objectives for the Engineering Physics program are to provide graduates with:

  • the knowledge to successfully enter and complete programs of graduate study in one of several engineering fields as well as in physics,
  • the skills to be able to function as productive engineering professionals in areas where traditional science and engineering disciplines overlap, and
  • an awareness of the importance of continued professional self development.
