What is Engineering Physics?
The Engineering Physics program at Tarleton State University is an ABET accredited B.S. Engineering degree that is an interdisciplinary blend of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Physics topics. The curriculum prepares 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 engineering, physics, and math 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.
The graduate of this program possesses the skills needed for their careers, including a proficiency in:
- the use of modern analytical tools,
- software and hardware development, integration and testing,
- design of microelectronic circuitry,
- the physics principles needed to analyze materials used in modern electrical engineering applications.
Additional studies in ethics assure that the graduate understands the engineer's special responsibilities to protect the health and well being of the general public.
