Mission of the Engineering Physics Program
The mission of the Engineering Physics program at Tarleton State University is to prepare the student for employment as a professional engineer in the area of Electrical or Computer Engineering or for graduate study in Physics or Engineering.
Extensive study in math, science, engineering, and physics gives the Engineering Physics graduate the ability to design components, processes, and systems to meet specifications and the ability to work and communicate effectively in team-oriented, project-management-driven environments. Computer simulation and modern analytical tools are used to solve physical and electrical problems. Software development, hardware integration, and testing of microcomputers, microcontrollers, and design of microelectronic circuitry provide the graduate with the tools to apply computer and software-based solutions. Additional studies in ethics assure that the graduate understands engineers' special responsibilities to protect the health and well being of the general public.
